Default baja 5b bodies

just a quick question.. are there any other body shells that fix the baja 5b other than the stock ones?, mine is looking pretty shabby these days.

I know that the 5t body would fit,but the price of it is scary..

any ideas would be great
tks guys

the hpi shells usually start cracking where the fuel cap area is , i just get some JB WELD putty and fix it with that , the desert rat bodies look pretty good actually , ive seen fasteddy's desert rat body he put on his new 5B that he painted up in black and it looks killer . Proline has their truck shell coming out that looks better than the 5T but the price is proberly going to be nearly the same , I could give ya a site that sells hpi shells custom airbrushed painted but those are worth $120 each . your best bet is to just buy another hpi or desert rat body that sell for $29 each on DDM and if you have the patience buy those XXXmain masks that DDM are also selling and just put it together , its a bit fiddly to do but its worth the looks when done .
