OK - what's the trick? What kind of decal paper do you print on to use on car bodies? Or is this a "print a photo and put it inside the body" kind of thing - has anyone done photos in bodies?

I realize this is FAR from a battery topic, but we don't appear to be overly strict around here....

The following information is for GP3300 cells.

Excellent results can be obtained by following these guidelines. After using the packs you need to determine if they are completely discharged or not. If you are not going to race the packs again for more than a week you should put at least 10 minutes of charge (at 4-5 amps) back into them. See footnote below** Store the packs until the day before you are going to use them again. The day before you use them discharge them down to .9 volts per cell (5.4 volts for 6 cells and 3.6 volts for 4 cells) and then place them into an equalization tray*. Leave them in the tray overnight and then right before you charge them up remove them from the tray and start charging.

**Footnote: The longer you plan to not use the packs the more charge you should leave in them. For long term storage (more than 30 days), I would completely charge the packs before storing them. Also expect some false peaking problems of these cells after long periods of inactivity. This problem should correct itself after one or two uses.

*Not all discharge trays are alike. We recommend the use of our tray as it has a diode built in to it prevent over-discharging.

We do not "print" our decals. The decals we use are usually either custom die-cut vinyl decals or custom screen printed. If you want decals talk to Overdrive Designs (see below) or Maxspeed Designs (www.maxspeeddesigns.com) . Overdrive does only die-cut vinyl. Max Speed does both. If you remind Saturday I can show stuff that both of the guys have done, they both make great decals it just depends on what you want.They are also very reasonably priced.

I know I have seen glue made for using photos inside car bodies (before paint), and I thought I had heard of printing graphics on some sort of decal paper... Back in my model RR days I know folks did this, and I thought I had heard of doing it for RC applications.

I wouldn't expect to rival the work done by professionals - just curious how it would work - IF it would work - or if anyone here has done/tried it.
