Fitzee’s Fabrications is a YouTube channel that I like to watch for inspiration and how-to videos on rust repair, sheet metal fabrication, and more. He’s interesting, has a great accent, and makes every single thing he does seem completely doable by anyone with the desire to do so. But one of the things I think most people find great about him is his tips, tricks, and hacks that make things easier. He often shows ways to make things without the fancy tools normally associated with them.
Wheel alignments are one of those things that most people have done at a local auto shop, unless they have an at-home alignment setup like our favorite from Quick Trick. But the truth is you can actually do an alignment with a tape measure and some string. Yep, and Fitzee is going to show you how in the video below. Pay attention, and then try it out and home and let us know how it works out for you.
The cool thing about this method is that since it doesn’t require a bunch of stuff you might now have, you can try it out in your own garage. I mean the worst-case scenario is that you don’t do a good job and still have to bring your car to the local alignment guy. But it might be fun, and you might actually be good at it.
