O'Gara Hess and Eisenhart are down here around Cincy, its not uncommon to see flatbeds full of Humvees either going to get armored or just armored. I always wondered how one got a job testing to make sure the materials and techniwues were bulletproof.

The armor plating is all well and good, but I just want a Landcruiser with a manual transmission!
When I was in high school in the 70's, I worked for a place in San Antonio that made these. A rich Saudi ordered a Mustang II for his son. Remember the dark years for Mustangs? They were dogs then, and with the armor it was a pig. We even put in a performance package. As my daddy says, "You can't polish a turd."
I think the coolest one we did was a Surburban for a Turk. He wanted a hunting rig for wild boar hunting and had the seats on hydraulic lifts that would push up through a cut-out in the roof so he could hunt from the truck.
The place I worked had an indoor range and an arsenal for persons interested in trying different weapons for self defense. They also had a driving school that taught offensive and defensive driving. Pretty cool stuff for a 17-year-old to see.
