Cheers.
Can be tricky to find a set of these without scrapes to the paint these days.
Will wait to see how the decals go.

Hey there, don't use dot brake fluids in your Maguras. Things will stick as the seals swell.
They use a light hydraulic oil, the Magura own brand is called Royal Blood and is blue and expensive!
People in my experience, find Citroen Hydraulic Suspension Fluid just as acceptable.

Have a squizz here....

All the best.
