THANK YOU! Winston SY & Avidinha with the craftsmanship AND detail that y'all both put into y'all models reading your comments just makes it worth the detail I put into this Hummer... Ekstensive metal works saw the progress I was making and that I needed better pics, they allowed me to take up close pics at the shop. Thumbs Up Thanks to EKSTENSIVE for doing so....

I have accomplished as much as I could with work & family, I have detailed the engine  with fuel rails, A/C compressor, Raditor fans & reservoir, straps to support hood. You can see somethings in red marker, which was added to replicate what it looks like directly behind the grille. Worked on dash with TV's, Radio, Flame steering wheel, TVs may not be in place at this moment but once painted they will go in.

Also fabbed up some D-Rings on the rear bumper and the tow hitch, you can see that the kit was molded in black. To me this gives the build so much more realism

And one more I was able to fit the grille and bumper with Mesh... It is coming along but won't look like the deadline will be met because of to many details that I want to make sure on here and want to give this build all it deserves! More to come soon

It has been along time since I've given an update on this build, with working 7 days a week and almost 16-18 hour days. Kinda hard to get work done in the shop, but I have manage to scratch build the amps and laid out the TVs in the dash

So I got to meet up with Friends this past Friday and talking plastic and hanging out,so I got me inspired to jump in the shop and scratch built out of styrene the headliner Tv and Headrest Tv's. The headliner Tv does hinge, and it has been a slow process but hey it will get done!! BECAUSE what I have in store after this WIP will be something totally new, and can be seen on my blog...

As you can see the headliner Tv is closed and hinges down, I like to post a pic of what it's will look like once it's said and done ( painted/ detailed ) thanks for taking a look!

JustMike and Mad Slammer thank you guys for the cool comments, I'm trying to capture as many details as I can on this 1:1 replica. I did some "fiberglass" work on the sub-woofer box and mid-range speakers in the rear seating area, which when I get better pics I will post them. When this build acts up and gives me trouble I take time off and work on my other project Ekstensive Metal Works  2 door Tahoe " TURBAN "... but HUGE thanks again for taking a look at my WIP! All comments are appreciated

Mad Slammer those are some killer One Off builds! Especially the Orange H2 man that should be built in real life... Keep up the awesome custom building I will definitely start following you ( friend request ) to see what new designs you come up with!

Was able to get more shop time in, here are the pics that I mentioned about a week or so ago. As you can see the mid-range speakers in the pillars, right behind the headrest ( rear seating ). Also the sub-woofer box " fiberglassed " the subs are  NOT there for now until final assembly. Pics may not be superb but hey I got in close as possible that I could...

Then I went ahead and added the storage pockets that are directly behind the front driver & passenger seats. They are both spaced to give the realistic look if you wanted to store something in there. And just to give it a tad more detail I made the seat controls and track rails... Thanks for taking a look

    Man, the details just keep coming. i'm really impressed with all the work you've done so far. i hope to see it in person on a contest table in the near future. i'm sure it will be a show winner. i haven't been to the houston area in years, but this would make it worth the drive. keep it coming.

Rusty32Rod I'm hoping for the same that the Hummer will soon be on a contest table, and I would definitely like to meet you bud! And thanks for the compliment...

JustMike thanks bud I have plenty more to pack detail and of course the General Pearl Paint,  mimic ostrich seats, and fine tuning ALL the chrome engine parts...

TnT thank you I just saw your Mercury, now that is extremely clean. And I will definitely like to see the work you put into it, and personally know the Mercury kit. I built one myself not to long ago, it's actually here under sleds  category... 

Thank you guys once again, this weekend I'll have more updates. I think I might be working on the door panel mid-range speakers.... Along with the seat belt assembly, and if time ( wife & kids ) permits just maybe the custom grenade gear shift

TnT thanks for the positive feedback... with work and family it's been about 2 months since I've got shop time and an update! So here is the mid-range speakers door pods, and when adding more into this replica everything requires its own space. And not easy cause the doors still have to function, so it took some definite planning to get it done!...

Bugs-one thanks bud I'm actually trying to load up new progress pics and of course Photobucket is not working correctly hope to have pics on here soon

 

Ok here are the pics finally got Photobucket to work... So I was not happy with the tow hitch I built sometime ago, I cut it out completely and scratch built like EKSTENSIVE Metal Works did to house the license plate. I truly want to catch the most detail as possible before I even start on the body work, so sorry if the progress is slow BUT hey like Ive heard before Slow Progress Is Better Then No Progress. Thanks for checking out the progress and leaving feedback!!

Thank you Aussiemuscle308  

I do apologize that I have not posted up anything in about four months. I have been working on the hummer, unfortunately my photo bucket keeps backing up with errors. I've been addressing this with Photobucket, trying to get it fixed so I can post progress pics. Crossing my fingers hopefully here in the near future,  during that time I did get to experience several months working with Ekstensive Metal Works. Thank you to Bill,Tim, Rudy, Derrick, Jamie, LouLou, ( Ekstensive crew ) I was able to learn more in depth tricks of the customizing trade from the legends themselves, which who will soon be on a TV reality show on  VELOCITY  " TEXAS METAL " season one around October 2017. I did get to meet new great people while working there, and have many more model builds lined up, for instance  Julio ( Mr. Leon ) Garcia 1970 F100 " Coyote Ugly ". Which was also customized from the ground up by Ekstensive Metal Works crew.... Thanks everyone for reading and again I will post picks up once Photobucket  cooperates, and I will have a Instagram account set up here pretty soon too....

thank you Moparlover64... I finally got Photobucket to do something about my upload errors. I have put alot of detail into this specific build for many of reasons, and reading everyone compliments makes it all worth the man hours that have gone into it. Here are pics of the Ekstensive Metal Works crew and myself ( bottom row left hand side ) along with the fully customized 2016 F150 that we worked on for SEMA 2016

I have more Hummer updates coming very soon, I didnt want to go over the pic limit. Here I scratch built the seat belt out of styrene, and the strap will posted up soon

Thanks again to everyone that taken a look,and all comments are def welcome...
