The only rigorous result known so far on the existence of isolated bodies in GR in rigid rotation are the ones by Heilig of 1995 on perfect fluids. We outline a method to solve the stationary Einstein equations with source a body in rigid rotation consisting of elastic matter. This is work in progress by R.B., B.G.Schmidt, and L.Andersson.
