Anyone know the sequence to bleed the brakes?

Will be replacing my pads with EBC Redstuff and using Motul 5.1 fluids.

RS400 with Z1 2pc rotors.

Anyone know the sequence to bleed the brakes?
Here ya go:

Infiniti Q50 SS Brake Line Installation

Step 6: Bleeding Brakes. There are multiple ways to bleed the brakes and plenty of shade tree mechanic methods to make life easy. We were able to use two kits to make life MUCH easier: Brake power bleeder and a Brake Vacuum Pump kit. In effect, the power bleeder, which attaches to the vehicles brake fluid reservoir, contains spare brake fluid and is under pressure, 15psi in this case, to allow fluid to be pushed towards all four calipers during the bleeding process. The brake vacuum pump kit allows each caliper to be bled and uses pressure to help draw fluid out of the caliper and into an attached reservoir cup which makes bleeding easy and clean (keeping the kit under pressure helps ensure there is no fluid spills. There is no need to have someone constantly pump/hold brakes to bleed the calipers with this configuration.

Unlike single piston brakes the Akebono brakes have to be bled from both the front and back of each caliper as each side provides even pressure during braking. When bleeding the brakes we performed 3 complete passes of the calipers to ensure they were completely bled. Always start with the caliper furthest from the Master Cylinder and work your way to the closest in this order: Rear passenger, Rear drivers, Front passenger, Front drivers.

When brakes have been drained use brake cleaner liberally on brake rotors and any other parts or areas that have brake fluid residue.

Thanks, Man about to do the same :)

How are you liking these pads? I have the same rotors and was going with Akebono ASP pads myself.

Haven't really notice a difference between this and StopTech Street Performance pads. Both performs well at the drag strip and spirited driving. Still creates a lot of dust though.

Hopefully it will not squeek the first time the car rolls in the colder weather. That was the case from my previous pads.

Note for HPDE events, there are better pads for the same price.
