You're full of wit lately aren't you?
5 inches in diameter or circumfrence?
You need to think about putting some movement into the bottom 2/3 of the trunk. You are not going to be able to do this with wire, it is going to take something more aggressive. There are three methods that come to mind. One, and perhaps the most practical and safe is to apply a trunk jack. Two: Use re bar and guide wires to bend the trunk into position. Three: Hollow a portion of the trunk to reduce the mass and bend it with wire. None of these techniques should be attempted by someone with very little experience. It takes a couple of years to gain the knowledge and courage to be stupid enough to hollow out the trunk or apply re bar; just joking. The trunk jack is your best option.
No, I just told you the information you asked for.
If people don't have any suggestions for this than I will take it to a different forum.
One thing I don't understand is how 150 some posts can be about a tool, but people don't really like to help with actual bonsai.
This trunk is no bigger than the pine jason and I turned into a pretzel. even accounting for the leverage we had with the longer trunk, there was no advantage by the time we got to the bottom. In addition that tree brings another lesson with it. DO NOT use bending jacks. They will smash the bark and kill the cambium below while the hooks cut the sh&t out of the other side. Rebar is good but you and your dad should be able to work this tree together with one holding and one bending. Trust me it can be done.
