    Here is how I mounted my New Bright Hummer body to the FG Monster Beetle. I used some aluminum rod,a dn drilled out the ends. Then screwed them onto a flat piece of aluminum. Then used Some contruction glue to hold it all together. Beat the crap out of it, and only cost about $25 plus labor to mount it.

    Great Idea!
    Did you leave enough post to adjust the shell height if needed?

    I beat the crap out of it driving it. It lasted a long time. The plastic is pretty strong on it. The only thing that had problems was the thin chrome strips for the bling factor.

    Was it $25 for the mounting parts only? Did you have to pay $100 for the 'donor' car?

    My son has a cool plastic dump truck (named 'Mr. Truck') that is a great size for my Firehammer. I am waiting for the day that Mr. Truck is 'for babies' and I can hack away at it. I guess I could just go buy another at Target for $10, too. :p

    The donor cars are around $25 to 35 on e-bay. Everthing else was free from my garage.
