Hi Austin,

No. The karts on kartbuilding.net don't have a plastic body or 
rubber/plastic body parts.

I'm sure you could either buy or make a plastic body/shell for a kart. I 
know a few people who done so out of fiberglass. This would involve making 
a timber frame and getting some fiberglass which I'm sure would be costly. 
Then also would be the spraying of paint etc.
It might be easier to get an old/broken plastic body of a donor/old kart 
and adapt it to suit.

You could go a simpler approach and just have "pods" and heavy plastic to 
form an outer bumper. See: 

Best of luck,
