Our new mini after a little detailing

Hi

I am a newbie and thought I'd showcase the wife's new mini, it's a 2011 mini cooper hatchback chilli pack. It came in superb condition but looks even better now I've detailed it using a clay bar, polish etc😀😀

What camera did you use? A box Brownie? The quality of the pictures is appalling. They are only 40kb!! I'm sure it looks great, but how can one tell?

Not sure TBH. I know the limit is 500kb and everything we all use takes much bigger pics than that. I have an old laptop and use MS Picture Manager to resize them down to about 300kb-450kb to post on here.

So how big is this pic if you can have a look at the size? On my W10 laptop it is showing as 298kb. Is it better quality looking than your pics? Interested.

46kb showing on mine Nigel

Is there a length/width limit as opposed to/as well as a size limit? Maybe the quality is lost depending on the original proportions

Jack, is that 46kb the first one I put up or the second one or both?

Just upload the image to a Photosharing website like IMGUR and copy/paste the BB code/image.

Example.

It's shiny, I like the colour, and whatever you've used on the tyres, it doesn't look like it's driven through an oil spill - all plus points

However ... and I don't think I'm being OCD here, you're the one that said you'd "detailed" it - the drivers floor mat & pedals just don't pass inspection, white gloves or the magic finger aren't even required.

For the pedals I'd suggest something like Autoglym interior "shampoo" spray, cheap toothbrush & an old towel to stop spray drift/splatter, scrub & wipe down with a wet cloth, repeat until they now longer have that "just came from a back street garage" (combination of rust, oil, concrete dust). Don't use anything shiny in the pedal area afterwards, better a slighlty dull finish that a foot slipping ...

Mats, similiar but pull out of the car & use a nail brush & dry carefully ... or replace with rubber ones, they are easier to clean. Genuine MINI ones are expensive IMO, but fit very well & add a bit of interest in terms of texture, being both ribbed and dimpled.

Looks great it is just a shame about the picture quality being changed. I wish I had gotten a different colour Mini now, mine is white and while I can get the wet look it just doesn't compare to a wet look on say red, black or blue.

The white is a nice colour for the Minis I think would look awesome with blue stripes.
