Hi Firestand

Not sure if it is the best, but bring the 4by up to a garage door where it is level and turn on all the lights and line them up, up close to the door. Use the lines across the door to get a indicaton to where the lights are shining.

Hi Fire, I take mine out on a flat bit of road, cover up all the other lights than the one being aimed with towels or something, and aim the lights wherever I want them. I have 2 pencil beams so I want them down the road, with light hitting the road about 257 m out in front, the old spread was a little different, but i have found that aiming wach seperately then checking them together is far superior t having them all on at once and looking for the moving light.

Spot on the drivers side is the go too.

No Wazza, that extra .10655 is essential, could be the diff between making it home or not.

Sorry Geoff, couldn't resist

Yes Waz, you caught me rounding off, bit if I gave specific instrustions then everyone would have corerctly aligned lights, even Commodore SS owners with their hopelessly glary fog lights...................
