Time Warp to the Finish

Three days is ample time to get used to the routine of the build and the company of the people who banded together for the creation of one special car. Being together with the El Hefe gang almost 24/7, the RWB build easily became everyone's tiny world despite being fully aware of the vast unexplored territory outside of the clique. The thought of seeing the same faces day in and day out has now created a comfort zone for everyone. This being the official last day of the build we all did not want the whole experience to end, but as with all good things it is inevitable. So, we all just had to be present and cherish the remaining moments.

El Hefe: Fenders and Tail On

Day two of El Hefe’s birth was somewhat the official start of the build since most of the major modifications were done that day. Given the amount of work that had to be accomplished in so little time, everybody in the shop was ready to be stuck in there until Nakai-san called it a day.  And as expected from a group of passionate gearheads, everybody diligently fulfilled their parts.

The Boss Creates El Hefe

El Hefe (El Jefe in Spanish) means "The Boss." Call it surreal, but witnessing the RWB boss work on a car touted as "The Boss" was very real to everyone present in the shop. Every RWB build is always about partaking in the journey, as you will read in this post.
