This is a 2006 Hummer H2. This is an American Icon that has stood the test of time. Its hard to believe that this 2006 Hummer H2 is 12 years old. It really doesn’t look more than 1-2 years old. It is always a blast for me to be able to work on these vehicles. They are red white and blue American all the way. It is really amazing how this manufacturer came into existence.
Birth of the Hummer H1
On January 2, 1985, the first Hummer rolled off the assembly line as a standard military vehicle, but it wasn’t until 1992 before we would first see the civilian Hummer we all know today. Dubbed “the world’s most serious 4×4”, the Hummer’s longevity, mobility and high performance have been big selling points since its inception. In 1999 I had the privilege of managing the detail department for Hummer of Orlando. I was able to see first hand how big these Hummers actually were. It wasn’t until 1992 before that we first saw the civilian Hummer we all know today.
Birth of the Hummer H2
After an agreement between AM General and General Motors Corporation was finalized in 1999, exclusive rights of the Hummer brand passed to GM, resulting in the original Hummer’s renaming to the Hummer H1, and paving the way for release of the H2 in 2002 and the H3 in 2005. Today its almost like the H1 didn’t even exist. You just don’t see them any more. When General Motors bought the rights to the Hummer franchise, they improved the fit and finish dramatically. There were multiple times I would go to get an H1 ready for delivery to a customer and find metal shavings in the carpet.
Diagnosing the Detail Services for this 2006 Hummer H2
When my client and I were discussing her needs and concerns, she mentioned that the reason she called me. The previous detail company she had work on this Hummer H2 didn’t even wash the roof, much less wax it. That to me is stunning. How can a auto detail company in Ocala justify that kind of work? After discussing several options with my client she decided to have our Complete Custom Detail service performed on this 2006 Hummer H2.
Services Performed on this 2006 Hummer H2
After inspecting this H2 I was surprised at was there was really no need for any type of paint correction. Usually on a vehicle of this age and type, there are scratches everywhere. This 2006 Hummer H2 is in very nice shape. I used Optimum Polymer Technologies Poly Seal and wax and the conditioned the leather with Colony Hide Food from London England. My client also mentioned that since I am a mobile auto detail company it is very convenient for her. I can come by her place of business and detail her vehicle while she is at work.
