Default Body mounts

What is a good mount system that is used without holes in the body and using pins, I tried the magnets but not much success there, I have a nice truck body and donít really want to use the pin system. Iíve thought about Velcro but was curious if anyone has had bad luck with it pulling the paint off inside the body during a mishap.
Thanks

Have you thought about trying to adapt something like (or exactly) the SCX10.3 body mount? Your mounting holes would be on your frame with the body posts mounted inside your grill/tailgate area.

Velcro is the way to go. As long as your paint was applied properly you should be fine.

I've had good luck with velcro and have never had it come loose or pull the paint off. Going to give RC4Wd magnets a try on a build I am doing right now. I saw a video recently where a fellow also used the magnetic mounts as a switch for his LED lights. Very curious about that??

I used some cheapo amazon magnetic mounts on my Trail King/Xtra Speed XJ. They probably wouldn't hold in a tumble but the body doesn't move under normal driving and I can carry it by at front bumper without worry of the body coming off.

Ring magnets are the trick. I can lift mine by the body.

Follow this one it works.
