build day two
One of the pivotal considerations in any automotive build is selecting an appropriate colour scheme. In the context of the Hibiki project, a meticulous choice was made to ensure that the chosen colour harmoniously enhanced the RWB (Rauh-Welt Begriff) build. Consequently, the decision was to employ “Sunset Orange Pearl,” a hue to accentuate the vehicle’s exquisite design lines.
Noteworthy is the colour’s remarkable ability to catch the eye, whether viewed during daylight or under night time illumination. Its vibrant orange hue effectively reflects light, distinguishing the vehicle conspicuously from other automobiles.
As is customary with any RWB (Rauh-Welt Begriff) project, the array of customisation possibilities is virtually boundless, with design decisions primarily left to the discretion of the vehicle owners regarding additional modifications. In the case of the Hibiki project, many alterations were executed. Notably, the manual handbrake was replaced with an electronic counterpart, operable by toggling a switch. Regarding prioritising the vehicle’s rear compartment for acoustic excellence rather than passenger seating, two bespoke subwoofers were seamlessly integrated into the back seat area.
To harmoniously blend the interior with the vehicle’s exterior aesthetic, the dashboard clocks received custom painting, a meticulous process masterfully executed by Reap Automotive Design. Similarly, the steering wheel was artfully crafted by MOMO to complement the overall design concept. We sincerely thank our valued sponsors for their significant contributions to the realisation of the UK’s inaugural RWB build project.
After three days of meticulous assembly, we witnessed the creation of an automotive icon, a culmination that far exceeded our initial expectations. This masterpiece’s intricacies and nuances are best appreciated in person, as mere pictures and videos circulating on the internet do not fully capture its exceptional beauty.
The concluding phase involves a meticulous final inspection by Nakai San, whose approval is the green light for the subsequent cleaning and polishing processes. During this phase, Nakai San proudly affixes the RAUH Welt banner to the windscreen, and a heartfelt handshake symbolises the culmination of a collaborative effort. This momentous occasion marks the completion of a once-in-a-lifetime journey, and we extend our deepest gratitude to Nakai San for affording us the privilege of playing a modest role in his passionate pursuit of crafting these iconic automobiles. Finally, Nakai San names the car himself, and in our case, he chose Hibiki because we like Japanese whisky, which also means sound vibration in Japanese.
In addressing the interior aspects of this project, we engaged Recaro, renowned for their exceptional seating solutions, to provide their top-tier “Pole Position” seats. Recaro’s expertise in retrimming interiors made them the logical choice for this endeavour. They meticulously reupholstered the seats and interior panels using Alcantara material, featuring a distinguished touch of double orange stitching. Additionally, a personalised touch was added with the embroidery of the Profusion Customs and RWB logos on the seat headrests.
Several comprehensive enhancements were undertaken to achieve a seamless and harmonious interior transformation. The interior carpets were removed by meticulous smoothing and applying the “Sunset Orange Pearl” paint finish to the interior floor. We extended this attention to detail by addressing the roof lining, which was removed and painted to match the overall theme. This comprehensive internal refurbishment was executed precisely, creating an exquisite masterpiece that perfectly complements the vehicle’s overall aesthetic.
