the slave piston's can't be dismantled from the cylinders but the levers can, this hinders most peoples refurb plans. decals seem painted on to me.

Yes that's what I thought but people must have done it surely. Maybe find a stencil if the signs then. Thanks

That's what it's called; Frog Tape...

...it's a type of masking tape that doesn't 'bleed' available from most DIY stores.

Trace the logo onto (preferably) tracing paper, stick a piece of Frog Tape to a mirror then place the tracing of your logo over it and run a ballpoint round the outline to transfer it to the tape. Cut the logo out with a scalpel, apply the tape to your brakes and paint...

...impress yourself with your new skill 8)
