Use a level or something to prop the brake pedal half down to minimize fluid leakage during the time when the line is not connected.

I don't really get the thermal capacity argument by some people ITT. Yeah, it isn't an insane difference going 355 to 380. But I don't think anyone on this forum could feel the few pounds extra sprung weight. So it is really just a wheel issue, and many 18's fit ST 380. Obviously OP agreed since you got the 380!
Thanks for the info! Hope fully I get all four corners done in around 4 hrs. The 380's will fit my 18's and so this helped my decision.
