I like the idea of the clear tubes - any idea of what size please and indeed where to buy?

Many thanks

what about anodising? I assume that a chemical paint strip and then anodising in a colour of your choice would work just as well?

FYI the slave pistons can't be disassembled (well if you do they won't go back together).

im actual in the middle of polishing a set up but to remove the old anodising ive used a scotchbrite sanding wheel but it only managed to do the rear set so im waiting for some new wheels to arrive http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281067323194? ... 1497.l2649
they are good and leave the alloy semi polished and ready for final buffing using one of these from the same seller http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300808167800? ... 1497.l2649
best bit of polishing kit ive invested in :D
