I have some clindamycin I want to use topically, does any one know that base I can use to make it topical?

Should not be more: than 48 hours before all the Clindamycin activity in your body has dissipated/metabolized completely. I do not think it even takes that long in healthy young individuals, but in older populations it can hang around longer, depending on the renal clearance (kidney function).
