Default trying to find a body, Slash

Iam having a heck of a time finding the body I really want, and at this point I doubt it exists, I have a Traxxas Slash 2wd and want a 80's or 90's Chevy Baja stile truck body (wide fendered, or atleast a body that covers the tires)that fits it, I currently have 3 bodies and 2 chassis my bodies are all Proline bodies, they are the Desart Rat, Desart Rat Carnage, and the Hardcore, they arn't what I really want though, I know the Chevy bodies I have found have been for the T-maxx/E-maxx, Revo and such and are too narrow for the Slash, Does anyone have any Ideas? Iwould appreaciate them greatly,
thanks

here are 2 of my 3 current bodies being as I just painted the 3rd tonight







here is 1:1 pics of what I want to have hopefully

you have probably already found something, but look on Proline again. They have released a 2009 Chevy Silverado body for it and a 2010 Ford F-150. check em out if you havent.

Good Luck, Wes

I did paint that VW bug (via airbrush.) It was a lot of fun. Took a long time on all the little details.
