Good stuff. You must have the drain-fill-bleed process down to a science now. Have you changed the rad already or still running the old rad? A lot of the remaining oil now might be trapped in either the rad core, or the high points of the engine, esp the expansion tank. When you get to the final drain, replacing the rad and removing the exp tank and any upper hoses (eg cold start upper hose, upper rad hose, etc) for thorough cleaning with soap and hot water might be a good concluding step.

We'll have to keep collecting ideas for a coolant sticky -- we have talked making an FAQ section on here for a while, seems like this topic and questions about timing and timing belts are some of the most common discussions on here, so would be nice to organize some of the info that has been posted over time in one place.
