A couple of weeks ago I introduced a Hakosuka
that was to be repaired. The other day I stopped at where it is been repaired and was told that everything is going smoothly. So, how did it look last time?
Synopsis of the events: On a drifting event held on December 24th, the Hakosuka hit a guardrel and the rear was torn. Rather than going directly to a garage, the owner decided to repair as much as possible on his own.
“Is this the place?… Sorry to interrupt.”
“Ah, somebody has come to help me.”
“(interrupting) That would be impossible.”
It is an amazing job. Last time there was no rear panel, and now it was already in shape! (or so it seems)
Yufune-san works on the curve that is torn. I really wished I could help.
The parts are kept together skillfully. A little by remembering how it used to by, fixing the bends, connecting parts. I’m astonished by all the things done at the same time… and also caring not to overdo it .
The expert of this road also joined, hitting and welding.
At 6 o’clock in the evening, work on this day is over. It has become kind of a rule! (or so it seems) If they remove the pegs it is not going to fall apart, right?
It’s been 2 days since the repair started “Next time I will be able to drive it back home” said Yufune-san. What?! There are still a lot of holes and the trunk is far from finished! And still it seems like it will do fine. Let’s hope so.
To be continued…
