I have been working all day trying to get how to change the forums background to a image, I'm tired of being using the same colour that you cant change in the colour palette, I wanted to change it to this like I did on the header.
background-image: url('')

Where can I find the template to do this?

Search for:

background-color: rgb(240,240,240);

That should do the trick for you.

If you use Search Templates under Appearance it would be the quickest way for you to find things.

Use Template Contains: function

But it's in the xenforo.css

That is also in the style properties:

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> General -> HTML -> Background
