Default ok... this one u have to be careful

go here and u will shown the 'AFTER RUN' picture. where the plastic sticker i use was chipped after an impact.

go here and u will be shown the 'BEFORE RUN' pictures of my car.....

in short.... maybe it is better if you use a THIN and PAPER sticker instead of using THINK PLASTIC sticker.

Post I did it like...

I used JET Glue for the picture, I put Glue in the whole picture and carefully put it in the area I decided. Then I paint the body as usual. I used Faskolor paint. Painting, that's the only way I used to protect the picture. I hope this answer your question.

the xxx main glue (used by me) or the JET glue (used by andyobaez) will be applied on top of the picture. then u paste the picture UNDER your lexan body BEFORE you apply painting. So that is why the picture will not be scratched coz it is UNDER the body.

as being said by andyobaez.... after the glue dried.... you will then paint your body as usual thus creating a protective layer to your picture from the water or nitro splashes that will 'kill' your pictures.


now i have additional problem after using PLASTIC STICKER.

my plastic sticker is SHRINKING become a bit smaller after sometimes.... thus revealing cracking lines along the sticker. this will cause water sippage when i wash the body with water or nitro sipage when you play your car.

SO .... again....

DONT USE PLASTIC STICKER ... only use paper.

How do you not have a hard edge around the edge of the picture when you cut it out? I guess you just have to take lots of time to cut the picture to get the edges as clean as you can... I mean, if your picture is cut out square, all you will have is a square...

How did you cut that even around the pictures?

On the civic body, I notice the area inside the girl's arm is black as well - was the picture of a girl against a black background, or did you have to cut the inside of the picture out?
