I think you create a layer, or a mask of the details (doors, rivets ...) then later on, lay it over top of the reskin

It's not clear to me what you're asking. If you compare the screen shot of the JR SD40-2, with a photo of a real BNSF SD40-2, as shown here <http://mjolnir.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=3687165>, aside from some details (for example, there does not seem to be a locomotive numbered 7175 on BNSF, but if there were it would appear to be a GE ES44C4, not an SD40-2), and exact placement of the large "BNSF" on the hood (should begin on the 9th door from the rearr, not the 8th), the JR model is pretty accurate, on the whole.

Further, if you consider the screenshot of the 1780 there is a hinge partially covered by the "F".

See if the access doors are the same then just do a copy paste over BNSF.
ASK JR FIRST!

I use Paint Shop Pro v8.1

there must be a way to just apply paint so that it doesn't cover over the details, like the sides of an sd40-2:

Yes. See here:
