Default Tamiya TNX 5.2R...Body search...??

Looking to buy Pre-cut bodies or body for my Truck....I don't want to have to cut and drill and all that stuff...I'll take painted/clear/whatever ya got...as long as it's a direct fit for the TNX 5.2R..(The terra crusher bodies don't fit...been there tried that)...Any help would be great...
P.S.....I live in Ontario Canada........If ya have any hop up parts available..I'll take them too....
Cheers
Jamie

You may find pre-painted bodies for it(I believe that ones made of the revo and t-maxx 3.3 fit), but you'll be hard pressed to find one with pre drilled post holes that fit your truck. It's not that hard to make them yourself. All you need is a body reamer and some paint(any kind). Put a drop of paint on top of the body posts and set the body on top of the posts in the position that you want(be sure to get the right position before letting it touch the posts). The paint will leave marks and you can use the reamer to make the holes. If the hole a little off, you can enlarge the holes a bit with the reamer to help it fit better.
