I like the sticker. I never thought of putting something on the hood vent, but it works.Went on a road trip to Savannah and Tybee Island, GA for vacation and a college visit for my daughter. Originally, I was going to take the IROC, however after further consideration, I was worried that forcing my daughter to ride in the back seat of a Camaro might be considered child abuse.
Since it was kind of a last minute switch of which ride I was going to take, there was a bit of a mad rush of projects. I washed, detailed and waxed the Hummer before the trip. I recently removed a wrap so I thought I would clean up and residue (which there was very little) and add some paint protection. Its definitely the cleanest H3 that has ever graced our driveway since day one when Hummer #1 came home from the dealer 15 years ago. Typically, there's a light coating of mud at least.
Also installed the leather seats out of Hummer #1 into Hummer #3. Whether it's just in our heads or not, my wife and I bo
th agree that the leather seats are more comfortable than the cloth. I've also got to say, even though these seats are never going to be mistaken for factory fresh, they have held up amazingly well compared to any leather seats from GM I have had in the past. They came a long way from the trash that was in the 90s.
Also moved the Rocky Roads over. In addition to using them for their intended purpose, my wife likes them as steps. If you have never done anything with sliders or steps, those 16 (of 12 depending on your accessory) bolts that mount to the frame are the biggest pain on the H3. I have wasted so much time extracting broken bolts, cleaning threads, and welding new inserts over the years. Especially after this many years, if you've never touched them and suddenly find yourself in a place to uninstall or reinstall something, good luck is all I can offer.
Also cut a vinyl decal to add to the hood with the Hummer's name. Yeah, we are a car naming family. The background on the name comes from the fact that it had a camo wrap when I bought it. My wife very quickly thought I should name him Sarge after the Jeep Disney's Cars. Equally as fast, we realized Sarge (in Cars) was actually Olive Drab and not Camo, but the name stuck. I left that one little spot on the faux cooler as an homage to its past life .View attachment 31991View attachment 31992
