I talked to Robing about his truck and here is a little info on it
"Well this clod started about 2 years ago when I bought a sassy chassis off eBay. Not too long after I got the chassis I received a brand new super clod buster as a gift. It was nice to get a new one after owning so many used ones. So I built the clod and of course used the sassy chassis with it.
When it came time to paint it I used a metallic orange that really looked great in the sun. In the bed of the body I used an undercoat spray for real trucks to simulate a bed liner. For the grille I just couldn’t have the 4x4x4 on it, dang it was ugly, what was Tamiya thinking. I got out my dremel and dremeled out the 4x4x4, sanded it smooth and painted it black. Now for the blower the kit came with an old style one and a new style one, I deiced to combine them and give it a unique look.
Since the body was orange and the chassis was all nice and shiny, the blue plastic parts just weren’t going to work. A little rite dye and some boiling water and those blue parts were now black and ready to go on the truck. The tires were Imex truck pull tires with clod wheels that had been narrowed on the inside. I also used some old spike tires on it with narrowed black wheels.
