Making a mask to remove hardsubs


I have two video sources. The first source has good picture quality and hardcoded subs, the second source has low PQ but it does not contain hardsubs.

I want to remove the hardsubs from the video and replacing the texts with actual video.

This is my script so far:
mask=Subtract(a,b).Levels(0, 0.16, 255, 0, 255, coring=true)
I subtract the two image from each other and then tweaking the colors to make it kinda black and white only.

Here are some frames:
video with good PQ
video with bad PQ
difference between them
after tweaking it with levels
using the mask to Overlay the text

So my questions are:

How can I make the mask pure black and white? Is there any script that turns the image into 1 bit?
How can I expand the mask with for example 10-15 pixels? I tried to mess with mt_expand but no luck so far.
