I've looked at a few self alignment tool sets over time. Didn't get one.....yet.

If you would buy one of those speed shop magnetic base alignment tools, you will be able to align any and all car from now on. Very simple to use. Even a Vega owner could do it. At about $100 a real good tool to have.

The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

It might be the IECO cover, although the "Pinto" logo was on the right hand top of the cover (as viewed from the driver's seat).  The IECO cover had fins on top and was painted with a black crinkle finish.

SPEARCO also made a cover but it did not have the "Pinto" logo.  It also had a finned top but was not painted.

This is per a couple old catalogs I have.
