i just brought them from ebay.

the minimum and maximum size should be 1-2mm

they work fine for what the mini does.

just cut the pads large enough so it fits over the entire chips (chipset)

the sizes that need to be cut are:

use a very sharp knife since a stump one does not work and will ruin the pad
as for the wifi antenna:
it looks like this one

i screwed it directly onto the display screws, for easy fitting.
there is no space left in the top window after using those antenna's
(cable is a bit to long though. might fix it later.)
