What does it take to do it right the first time? Well after we stumbled across Sergio Higareda's hummer, we were immediately stopped in our tracks. After taking a lot of photographs of this beautiful 2004 Hummer H2 at the Dub Car Show Los Angeles, we found the owner and had a few minutes to get the story on his ride.
Sergio and his son picked out a huge set of Lexani Dial wheels for their custom Hummer and had the inserts painted to match. Photo at SEMA 2012.

As a father, Sergio wanted his first custom build to involve his son. So as a theme, they chose Superman, or as Sergio States "Super Hummer". While being new to the custom scene, Sergio knew that if he was going to build a custom Hummer, he was going to have to go over the top in order for it to stand out.

As you can see from the photos, there is nothing untouched on this vehicle. Sergio and his son picked out a huge set of Lexani Dial wheels and had the inserts painted to match. Once the wheels were mounted, it was on to the interior. The entire interior was treated to a Ferrari style stitching where even the threads were color matched to the flawless paint. When choosing audio and video upgrades, Sergio chose Plasma TVs and Treo Audio components, and judging by the crowds surrounding the hummer... it definitely turned out to be a great audio system.

When it comes to the engine compartment, Sergio said he wanted to incorporate the Superman theme. He include a mural on the underside of the hood that represented his pride for the city in which he resides. When it comes to the motor itself, Sergio told us that because he lives in a city with such crazy weather, he had to choose an air intake that would endure the elements. He then told us, the only choice for him was K&N part # 77-3037KP, because it was, in his eyes, the best on the market and it also had the most custom look out of all his other choices.

From the Custom double mesh grilles and other embellishments made by Tiarra Grilles, to the custom paint, Sergio has built a masterpiece. This just goes to show that if you build your ride out of passion and spend time with your family while doing so, you will not only come out on top of the game, but also teach the next generation of builders that when you have all the right products you are guaranteed success!

Sergio told us that he was proud to have his Super Hummer on display at SEMA 2012 and he looks forward to promoting all the companies that he represents for many years to come... who knows you might see it at a show near you!
