The Dub Stepper

I consider myself somewhat of a modest customiser (all things considered) but sometimes I create something that kicks modesty to the curb and says “Dayummm that’s sweet!”

This here is one of those builds – a spontaneous custom creation that started small and simple but quickly got WAAAAY out of hand in the most awesome of ways. It all started rather modestly when I decided to chop the roof off of a Kool Kombi…

I ended up keeping this as a finished custom, called it the Kool Khrombi and set about hacking another Kool Kombi. It was time to do away with the clean lines of polished diecast and enter the dirty poppin’ lockin’ world of dubstep…

Before I share the details of the build and the finished product itself I think it best I set the appropriate tone – and there is nothing more appropriate than watching two of the finest dubsteppers around poppin’ and lockin’ to what could arguably be the greatest song ever. (the remix is freaking badass too!) I highly recommend you click play on the video and continue reading the post with MJ’s sweet remixed beats ringing true 🙂

…30+ views and 2 hours later and Alex finally continues writing the bloody post!?!! – damn you Poppin John and RW. Damn you to heck!

Kool Kombi Low Rider Custom | The Dub Stepper

I’m going to get straight to the point with this one – namely because I never actually took any progress pics LMAO!
– Hey, it was a spontaneous build after all :p

The important ‘Customizing Stuff’ that might actually be somewhat useful relates to what I actually used on this build. So like, yeah… let’s go ahead and do that…. grrrrreat.

  • Trailer is the pickup bed from a ’52 Chevy
  • Wheels and accompanying [adjustable] axles are from a Revell Low-Rider model
  • Hydraulic setup in the back is made of copper wiring, bits of engines/random crap and my strange imagination
  • Bicycle is from a Hot Wheels Pop-Cycle casting


Enjoy 🙂

  1. This is something I haven’t seen anything like before and I actually dig it! I recently got into doing custom models and then some how ended up on customizing cars. It is a blast! I don’t know where you came up with the idea for this one but I want to use it for future inspiration! I am going to check out your other work. Do you have an Instagram page or something where it is all on one page?
