Granddad Stinky's Clod Project

Post by Granddad Stinky » Sat Feb 23, 2019 3:34 pm

This was my Valentines present last year, along with a very cool T shirt.
I'm aiming to do as much of the metalwork myself, so it's MY Clod.
It's running silver cans on a HW860 and have a pair of torque tuned motors for when its done.

I bought this non-runner for £20. Useless toy truck, great new body. It even has unused light buckets. It'll need a 1 1/2" stretch front and rear.

Pretty nice start! Looks like that started life as a chrome edition and ended up with a plain white body.
(chrome edition has all blacked out parts that are usually blue, in addition to a chrome body)

I like that toy body!

Oh and I added a preview window for your video. If you click the edit tab on your post you'll see how I did it.

Thanks Andy.

I see what you did with the YouTube code. I'll have a go.
