    eBay usually has chop shops that have stock bodies.
    The only custom ones I see pop up on there are very pricey.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I'd like to find someone wanting to get rid of a mint condition stock blue Fiesta body(the brushed Fiesta...not the Rally)
    I could always paint one...but I love the stock color and it would be much easier to just remove decals.

    Painting is really not that hard. Even I can do it. You can use different colors, but you can also use a single one. Just black and using just a few decals did the job for me:

    Nobody is born with experience

    I've painted bodies before,and I agree it's not that hard.
    For my needs the factory paint seems to hold up better on a basher body.

    So what's a good way to paint do you spray bomb or should I be looking at getting a airbrush kit? And what's a good paint to use ?

    I spray bomb with Pactra RC paint.

    I've actually only painted 2 bodies so far...but I'm about to spray another for my daughter,and I'm sure I'll be doing more.

    We converted my daughters Fiesta into a Merv...so I cheated and took her old Fiesta body,stripped the decals off and re-stickered it to use as a basher body on my Castle powered Ken Block car.lol...

    I have the old Camaro and I like the looks and its pretty durable. The front bumper fits snug to the foam front bumper. And its pretty thick at the body mounts
