M04-L, Toy Maisto Body mounted, custom license plates an ode to the old 90's TV show Pacific Blue. Kind of an ever evolving project when I pick it up to tinker with.

That looks great, now you got me wanting to find the Maisto body for my own bus conversion.

Wow, what a beauty! So did you marry the Tamiya chassis with just the VW bodyshell?? Would be interested to find out how you achieved such a nice model.

Great model! Any guide how you did it available? Thanks.

Let me add some pics to try to explain better, it is a bit of a hodge podge modifying mostly stock stuff and a coat hanger to make it so it hinges up in the rear and uses the two body clips in lower front.

This was all done years ago, not sure I would do it this way again but it has held up and worked. Everything there was either part of the M04 kit body mounts or part of the original Maisto car with the exception of the bent coat hanger wire.

At the time I wanted it to hinge for easy battery replacment. Today I might just come up with something with some brackets and screws from body to chassis or something. Hope that helps.
