Hadnt even thought of the XB kits... What a great idea!

That'd be the 57742 kit. Not sure what the part no for the bits is though.

Ask what ever Tamiya office is near you about the unpainted bodies.
The ABC Mini Countryman is nice and comes with seperate front and rear bumpers. Its a pretty nice kit,if you dont have a Genetic you should try one,very user friendly adjusting the rear diff is a little bit of a pain,but that dosent have to happen to often.
I found the Monte Carlo parts on eBay and just ordered them (just before I saw your post...LOL)

I'm getting the rally lights for my mini this week, so it should really match by the time I'm done..

the only real reason I'm looking for the regular Mini body is because the racing body is "sectioned" (the fenders are higher up into the body than on the regular body)

having the chrome bumpers wasn't so much the problem (I have an M01 that I still have a complete body for, but I painted it dark blue WAY before I got my green mini, and you can't really remove Tamiya paint) I can scavenge the chrome parts from my older one... or I can't use chrome paint to finish the details...

I didn't know you could get the XB bodies unpainted... that Rally body would work fine if I could... it's actually molded from the original Mini but with all the decals and the rally lights... I have some friends at Tamiya... maybe I'll try them...

I wrote ABC and they told me that they might work on a new version of the mini body since the old mold sucked so badly, now that they have a new molding technique that produces Tamiya-quality bodies...

I went through the back way on Tamiya's site and was able to order a new (old) Mini Cooper body... I don't think it comes with the chrome parts, but like I said, someone on eBay had the Monte Carlo chrome parts that I bought already...

I think I just scored!

Theyre longer than the super mini shocks, but as long as you put spacers/o rings on the shaft, they should work fine.

Not bad..

seems to have gone through, and they didn't say "syke!... you thought you could bypass our system and get a discontinued body?"

there was an actual "add to cart" versus "discontinued" and it allowed me to pay and everything.. i can't wait

Glad you could get the body you wanted, I have a MGB and wish i had the choices you have to copy your Real car,Im stsuck with a bad Kyosho attempt.

Im guessing you talked to Suda-san at ABC,he is a pretty nice guy.ABC has stepped up the up the bodies quite a bit, You need a Countryman,even the Wood trim decals look pretty good.
