Really simple one this and of course it may be I am chasing a unicorn here but was wondering aabout any advice to do with making the rubber hoods on sram brifetrs fit well after removing them to regrese the double tap mechs and then put them back on...

I had heard some shops use hair dryers? Any comments or advice?

Heat them up before you put them on. I use warm water and then dry them off before installing.
