I sold my tremor last year to a guy before I had a chance to bring my kids to school for the first time in this truck. The new owner told me last week that a film crew from Australia has rented this truck for some movies scenes. He paid me good money and he is also now happy making money as he rents it out for movie and commercials ads.
I am now in the process of building another one for myself but this time I do it a little bit different, it will be using Hummer chassis, Duramax diesel engine. I am using AM General body building method and not using the tremor design (No offense Thomas). Fortunately I have a friend who owns a hummer and he let me obtain every single piece of body panel dimension from his original hummer truck. As this is Tremormuv forum, I do not feel right to post it here as it will be a 100% Hummer body copy cat except I am using steel material.
I have a friend who helped made several molds for the hummer hood, X-doors, side marker bucket, tail light bucket. I am producing all this fiber stuff for my future project.

I will post it somewhere when she is completely done.

nice
Starting a second one? that's a great idea, second time will always be better :wink:
I’m considering doing a second one also very similar to what your doing but this time it will be out of aluminum and it will be glued and rivet like the original one. I also have a friend that as a real H1

Tanto why not post it on the H1FORUM instead? We would all love to watch your build again.

Hi Guys,
I am ready to post but got problem accessing Photobucket, for some reason the web site is frozen after log in. Once I solve this issue I will post my 2nd/3rd built on the H1forum.
