I think I like the yellow better than the original colour.
The transfers look great!
Chapeau

:oops: to be honest I only use MS Word and print the image on plain white paper until I’ve got the size I want before using the waterslide stuff

Not sure what the OP used but plain paper copiers/Printer lay the image down fine, in this case it’s just a plain black

Not tried anything fancy as Gil is light years ahead and has the art work in most cases.

For these brakes it only has to be pleasing to the eye as HS33 etc as cool as they are, aren’t the main focal point.

For the price of a coffee buy some water slide paper and have a play with random pics or images from google..... image as a kid being able to knock up your own stickers or name badges- we’ll now the big kid in you can :D


I love THM ! Or Klein Owners are just misunderstood
