you paint the inside and there should be a sticker on the roof that says peel after painting and u can just lay the flames paint it and befor it dries completly peel them slowly
but can i paint the outside

PAINT THE INSIDE...
the sticker is on the out side right... it is on the protective film reminding you to take it off after you paint. It is there to catch the "over spray" to keep it off the out side of the body. But remove it before you put on stickers. You will not see the protective film. It is thin and clear. Take a part of the body you have trimed off and you can scrape it and see how the film just peals off.
These paper flames... are they stickers or just paper.... I would not trust paper to stay in place... but if they are the pre-made paint mask you are fine.
faskmask is used to create your own designs. if you use it make sure to put it on thick. 3 or 4 heavy coats. they you can cut out your own designs. paint the darkest first then remove the next section and paint it ... and so on untill all colors applied.
hope that helps get you started.

you could paint the outside... but it will end up looking very dull. paint the inside and it will be shiny.
the only time I have painted the out side it to get a dull flat finish for the bed of a truck... gives it the bedliner look.....
thanks the flames that i am talking about ate just like sticky paper that you paint under for the flame color than on top for the color of the rest of the truck than you take them off and you have flames

cool... you will be good to go with them... if you used faskmask you could add multipule layers or colors to the flames. But other than that you are good to go... remember to start with your darkest color.... that way the light colors dont get taken over...
yeah i want to put the italian colors to the flames than get letters that say italia on both sides
