I like the jig. Can you do both sides with the same jig or do you have to rebuild it to do the second side? I'm amazed at how often guy's won't take the time to make a simple jig like this to do a job. Often it's much faster and simpler that trying to work without one.

Yes, both sides can be built with the same jig. Toe is neural , camber is set using shims in the jig on the microstub.
The jig was not only usefull in setting wheelbase, but in welding to help control warpage
