It has 4 wheel fully adjustable so lots of bit to fiddle with.

Looking forward to that when….. I get the seats back.  Did find a shop in Plano that specializes in custom alignments.

That’s great!  Do you have the alignment specs to tell them? 

I still have the same tires on my car from its alignment seven years ago and there is still no uneven wear.  Plus it handles great.

Survived Caffeine & Octane this morning. This was the first time in a new location so it was a zoo. Hot, no shade at all. Used the tow dolly to take it as it across town from me. It was their British car day so probably 60 British cars there together of all types. This event bills itself as the largest car show in the country with an average of 3000 cars each time. I stayed close to the moke to keep an eye on it and answer questions. Been there, done that now. Just too large for me. I will go to more local smaller car shows now.

I'm pretty much over car shows unless they're at a venue where I can get into the A/C. Earlier this year our All British was at a really nice venue and even tho it was in the 90's I was able to get into a nice cool air conditioned mall that had a great food court, so double win.
