Anyone making fiberglass bodies for samis yet?

I still have a mint frame laying around and would love to find a fiberglass body for it. If anyone knows where to find one let me know. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks for the link Peci. That body looks great with the LJ front clip.

Somebody has to start marketing fibreglass tubs in North America. There is so much aftermarket support these days that the Samurai will never die. The only part left that you can't replace or upgrade is the tub. Someone has to get going on this.

so all you need to do is find a way to reduce shipping costs from europe.

Actually, I think a aluminum tub would be great.
I have seen some for jeeps, maybe there will be one for the sammy soon.
Heck, there are a few vendors that are making sammy frames already, so if a body was available, a scratch built sammy would be possible.
