Default New body for buggy

Guys,
I want to get a new body for my losi 2.0 buggy rtr,in your opinion what is the best way to go.I don't have the time or the skills to paint my own.I don't need anything fancy just different than the one that came with it.I checked out fastlane graphics,but could not find a phone number to contact them on there web site.Any others would be helpful along with phone numbers.I don't like to order online,i'd rather do it over the phone.
thanks

Ordering by phone could be interesting, considering it's not 1995 anymore. You may have to break down and order online if you want a wrap. Not sure if Upgrade takes phone orders. Another option would be to get a local painter.

Have not heard of phone orders, but I will tell you from personal experience that Chad over at Fastlane is one cool dude. Send him an email, I'll bet he will hook you up. The difference between fastlane and upgrade IMO is fastlane does one hundred percent customer work.

If it matteres, I think most of use are very cautious with online ordering, but Chad is a trustworthy guy.

Online ordering was a bit scary back in the late nineties. 99% of online transactions are at least as smooth as buying from a shop these days. You'll be fine, especially if you're extra cautious to begin with.
