    What kind of camera are you using? On my camera I can change the settings to take Internet ready pictures which are 640x480. You can also go to your "My Pictures" files on your computer and change the sizes there.

    i removed a good part of them by mistake with the cleaner that I grabbed not knowing that it was the wrong stuff. so then I just decided to take them all off... I have a set of decals coming my way.. and I just found another set of all yellow roses.. so this is my project machine.. stupid me.. and then to find out she is one of only 5000.... my other one is 1 of 35,000...

    This cleaner is great on the chrome/silver stuff and for taking off built up grease.. but it will remove your decals if left on... autoparts cleaner... I know now...
