I did this over the summer with a BMW body, Its pretty easy, I bought a book abut special paint jobs for help. I just cut out the pictures and glued them to the body with some white school glue. It dries clear and is easy to wipe up the extra. All I had to do was wipe out the air bubbles. Heres my results (hope I helped you at least a llitle)

Do you have to use pics from mags and of that kind. Or can you print your own from your PC. And if so do you need a certain kind of paper, like a gloss or will reg paper work

I have successfully used computer printed pictures on regular paper by applying a thin layer of Fascoat, on the exposed side to be painted over, with a Q-tip to prevent any paint bleeding through or shadowing the paper.

Okay so how exactly does this work? Do you glue the pic on the inside and then just mask over that area on the outside or what?

paint the picture with the glue and stick it to the shell, it dries clear and is fairly flexible. you can then paint over it.

Can you do this to apply the decals to the inside of the body insted of having them scrape off the out side?

It should work but it could react with the decal. The other problem is I dont know if the paint would dry properly on the adhesive on the back of the decals.
