Bob:

Do you have the truck?  I've seen a body shell for the truck that's available for USD $85, I don't know what shipping to your side of the pond would be.

If you don't absolutely HAVE to have an authentic Kyosho body shell, then there are literally hundreds of body shells available to choose from.  In a range of from less than USD $10, to amounts large enough to bring tears to your eyes no matter what your currency of choice is.

Only just spotted this Bob, did you get sorted with a body shell?  i  take it its 1/10 scale the same as the electric version. Got back into the Buggy scene myself a few yrs ago after a 30 yr break!!!!! all new technology programmable transmitters and electronic speed controllers brushless motors Lipo batteries, took some sorting out and getting used to, ok with it all now apart from the driving is still  crap :doh:

Hi Bob, sorry for the delay in getting back to you, no luck finding a body shell for the Kyosho Sandmaster, only for the Kyosho Outrage which is basically the same buggy but on an electric motor instead of Ic. which means the the engine cooling cut out isn't marked into the shell for cutting.
