The images are single layer files so I have to unlock them and I think that's where the problem occurs. I've tried using SetTexCoord but all that ends up doing is stretching the image.

Any suggestions?
As the poster after you noted, the images need to be in powers of two. In addition, TGA files need to have an alpha channel. I have always found tga files to be a bit fincky to work with as some image editors like tga files and others don't. I usually find it's easier to work with PNGs (convert your TGA to PNG using your editors "Save as.." or "Export" commands) then using PNG2BLP (found here on WoWI), convert them to WoW friendly BLP files. No fussing with alpha channels or finicky image editors.
