It's here!!! My ultimate homage to the original old school Clod Buster. This is the way I would have built my Clod back in the day if I had the money as a kid. I hope you all dig this Clod because it took me a long time to build it. I am currently waiting for my battery pack to be shipped, but at least all the lights are working and the wheels can turn while sitting still! Waha.


Enjoy these first shots. I will be doing a build page if you are interested to see the progress. Cheers.

You are right. It has a very similar paint scheme to a featured Clod in an old RCCA issue. I always liked that Clod so I adopted the look and made some changes of my own. Did you notice the radical zebra print bed cover?

Havent been on the board in a long time, probably a few years, and I popped and seen your clod with old the awesome APM parts and had to find the thread. Great job! I am working on a few old school RCCA type builds myself. Ill have to post them up

Thanks Mike. You can't imagine how long it took to source all those APM and CCP parts. Just by chance someone was willing to part with a set of aluminum ladder bars. Those are impossible to find. And I paid through the nose for 'em. But this was a spare no expense build for me. Can't wait to see your build brother.

Tony,
We should talk, as it seems we share very similar interests in Clods. I currently have a friend machining ladder bars, and another friend doing chrome clod parts as well.

not to thread jack but here are a few of my current projects

Outstanding Clods brother! Feel free to post as many of your stellar trucks as you wish. I am intrigued about your friend making ladder bars. Perhaps more of these insane Clods will be easier to make in the future. Love your Clods man!
