Its Always an honor to work with Chip Foose and the Overhaulin team, but this build was something very special. This Hummer was on assignment in Iraq for CNN covering the war and had seen a great deal of action being embedded with solders in Iraq. The interior of the vehicle was in extremely poor shape due to the fact that it was so very hot in the desert. The temperatures would routinely reach well over 115 degrees and as much as 128. That kind of heat outside makes the average temperature of the inside of the vehicle somewhere over 160 degrees. The heat basically made each and every trim component extremely brittle, and we had to wrap close to a hundred different pieces. When we pulled off the door and kick panels, there was so much sand that had accumulated inside that you could fill up a wheel barrel. It was nuts. We were given very specific instructions by Chip to make the seat inserts resemble tank tracks in the sand, and after 7 full days and nights the "A" Team finished on time and the vehicle was shipped back to CNN World Headquarters in Atlanta for the reveal. The vehicle was then sent to Barrett Jackson to be auctioned off for the families of those involved in the war. The final bid was just over 1.1 Million dollars, not bad for a weeks work.
