First post so big hello from Brisbane, Australia. I have an all alloy FG Leopard with 2 speed and Magura front and rear brakes. I also have an FG MT in a vaious state of dissassembly but ...

I deplore the stock FG Leopard shell and they have discontinued the beetle shell which I could have lived with. I also do not like the Asguard Baja shell so I'm tempted to move what I can from the Leopard to the MT chassis to make a Marder. I know from the tank back everything is 100% compatible but if anyone has done this what did they decide with the front end? Anyone using Leaopard arms on marder and are the MT front part a and b bulkheads the same as the MT bulkheads? can start pulling everything apart to try but figured someone may be able to give me a leg up.

i made my own chassis with the dimentions of a leopard and mutated it to a MB , i had to use the leopard axle mounts A&B because if you own a leopard the chassis is flat and the axle mounts have the angle in them and the marder MT ETC have flat axle mounts because the angle is in the chassis
heres a few pics i have

I've got a new MB shell Flibs. Is that what your looking for or is there a different Beetle shell for the Leopard?

Mike, looking at the catalog they part#'s are different. The shell seems to be more like the standard beetle and beetle pro but I can't tell. Was hoping someone knew what the deal was with discontinuing the beetle shell for the Leopard...
