I am looking to convert my Monster truck to a beetle body.
Other than the body/wing what will i need.

Also, I have the Samba monster pipe, will it still work with a beetle body?

Hey james I just did mine and here's what I did.Move the long front mounts to the top of the roll cage.I was told to put shorter mounts in the front but the hole pattern wouldn't line up so I cut down a long post and mounted it in the center.Also had to put a new hole in the side of the body.Simple mods but well worth the look over the MT body IMO.

Thats great easy mod. Did you just buy a front mount set and modify it from the looks? What holds the front down?
