So I have this ATLAS Porsche that I'de like to take off the body from the chassis and can't figure out how ?

Do you just pull those PLASTIC guides up ?

I don't see screws ?

Do you twist the guides ?

HELP! 

THANKS, Ted

I have no idea but I think the two light colored tabs in the back just over the top of the 7 look like tabs sticking down from the body to catch on the chassis. A little pressure and it may pop out, or not.

Those pins just push in and out. Go slowly as these 50 year old bodies can get very brittle depending on plastic color.

I tried with a pair of needle nose against a screw driver to get it of the chassis....no go. Very stuck I give up !
Don't want to destroy anything !
