    No you dont.
    The lunchbox has a hard body that you paint on the outside. Not a lexan one. Thats why I was asking about clearcots

    personally ide clear it then add the decals. 1ST you can change them if you decide you want somthing different and 2ND ive seen clear have bad reactions with some of the stuff sitckers are made with. Some of the vinal ones shrivle up or crack real bad or turn a yellowish color.
