Default trunk line start up

I think based on my research I have this figured out but after I finish getting the line run I was thinking:

1. Pump BPC mixed in hot water through each line
2. Flush with plain hot water
3. Pump starsan mix through line
4. Hook up booze and enjoy fruits of my labor

Thoughts?

I don't understand your question? Are you building a trunk line? Trying to clean a used one?
Need more data!

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

I am building my own to keep costs down - all the lines are brand new - so do i need to clean or can i just sanitize and go?

Cleaning certainly won't hurt.
Have you decided on a chiller yet?
