Every Mil Spec Automotive H1 will have started life as a 1995-2001 Hummer H1 civilian model. The team started out working with cheaper, easier-to-source military examples, but their VINs cannot be registered in all states, hence the switch to less prevalent civi H1s. The vehicle is disassembled to a nut-and-bolt level; the frame is checked, cleaned, powder-coated in gloss black, and reassembled with all new hand-torqued fasteners. The 10-gauge aluminum bodies are similarly inspected, and many require rework, because of the considerable amount of flex permitted by the original. They're then upgraded with sound, vibration, and thermal insulation, and ultimately painted with a thick, rugged bed-liner-type material that can be tinted different colors and contains Kevlar to improve scratch resistance. They're then titled according to the year of their original VINs.
