I also polished the crown and brace:
I got the decals from Gil and he did an excellent job. All the rebuild parts came from UKBikeStore who are ace with marzocchi parts as I understand they are next door to Windwave so if they don't have it (unlikely) they can pop round and ask them and get them listed on their site for you to buy straight away.
