Default Share your hard body rigs for inspiration

Been in this hobby a long time but never done a hard body build. Looking at jeep jk or xj but also looking for different ideas. Please share any pics of your rigs sporting hard bodies. Any models used. Looking for some ideas and inspiration to build off of. My build will be scx10 ii platform. Looking forward to seeing some really cool vehicles

I love the China JK 2 door bodies, they are so detailed and require little effort to make look good. The fact they are ridiculously cheap makes them even better (I paid $27 shipped for this one).

Here's my Trx4 with a fibreglass beetle body and 3D printed engine. Works great. Used to run a similar body on an SCX10.
