    Finish of the Dip?

    It all depends on how they done it, distance from the rails, temperature, how clean the rails was and other such things.

    You can smooth the dip to get a better finish.

    Nicely done.
    Did you use the rattle tins?

    Yeah I did. It's a bit of fun really. I'll see how long it lasts.

    It will last a really long time.

    My wipers and window rubbers are still going well after 6-8 months and almost 15k (I think).

    You want to check your camera settings on your phone mate, Iphone 5 or not, it should be taking better pictures than that!

    Take this for example, taken off my Samsung Galaxy S2:

    I think it's more to do with the method he used to upload the pictures

    True but if it was set to something ridiculous like 0.3mp quality then they would come out pretty rubbish. Not sure it is even possible on an Iphone as I'm not tied in Apple chains.

    It's cause I enlarged and screen shot them to get them closer before posting. Didn't think a few pics would cause so much debate.

    Its only cause people really wants to see your work it full HD quality or something.

    Send the originals to me if you want and I'll crop them down correctly and post them?

    It's not debate, just without decent clear pics, it's hard to make out. This forum is driven by text/images at the end of the day Stol.
