you can put an o-ring or slice a piece of fuel tubing between the body mount and the body to take up the slack

I use a couple of layers of masking tape inside the body around the holes and felt stick-ons i buy at a artsie craft store on the outside around the holes,keeps it nice and quiet.

I use the soft side of velcro on the underside of the body then cut the holes out...works well

I used the fuzzy side of velcro on the mount. Also trim a bit off the front of the body so it doesn't "tap" on the bumper.

front lip of the body tapping on the bumper is where most of the noise is coming from.
