Hi All

I was just wondering if anyone has ever stripped down an old set of HS33 Magura Raceline brakes and Polished the parts up or re painted them ?
If so how did they turn out? would you recommend doing it ..
Any Pics would be cool to see how they look...

Cheers

Yes, been trying to find pics of a lever body polished up but haven't tracked down the thread as of yet but there's a pic of a polished slave in here http://www.trials-forum.co.uk/topic/162 ... try2273335

Cheers for the Link

The slave looks quite good polished up..
My Magura HS33 are the yellow ones but have had better days so considering doing the whole brakes and levers ..and then using clear tubes so you can see the blue brake fluid ?
But would be nice to see a set before starting if anyone has done it already?

Stuck a request in for some pics as I know there are some somewhere in there! In the meantime have a butchers at this lovely bit of carbon pimpness which I used to run! (ignore the red arrow I've drawn on the pic!)

I'm glad you posted this as funnily enough I'm just about to do the same to a set of blue ones I have, ( they will clash with the red frame).I was assuming that i wouldn't be able to get new paint to adhere properly over the blue so that I'd just end up having to spend the time sanding them down?

Get some nitromorse on, it won't take much to get the paint off them trust me!

...pretty straight forward really. My mate took the time to rub his done smooth and polish them. Now they look cool.
