so you just hold it on while you paint or do you use a light tacky spray glue to just hold it in place around corners and such so it doesnt move when you spray?

also what are the best colors to use when doing it to make it look the most real?

I just lay it in the body...low air pressure avoids it lifting. Spray straight on to avoid lifting and blurring. Experiment with color combos you like.
