Just wanted to know if anybody has had to check the front alignment of their car after it has been damaged and where they took the checkpoints from.
I know the rails have been replaced in my LX hatch at some stage and I want to make sure the front of the car is perfectly aligned.
I have used the corners from the base of the windscreen diagonally across the front of the car and it is Within 1 to 2 mm of measurement to the front nose cone at the same reference points. Also I have measured directly from the corner of the bottom of the front windscreen to the front radiator support panel directly straight in alignment and it also is within 1 or 2 mm.
From that I am guessing that the front of the car is perfectly Square to the firewall rearwards.
Also is there any particular spot on the firewall that is used to measure to the chassis mounting Point holes on the front rails to make sure they are the same from side to side for mounting the front cross member.

Only concerned about body measurements as all of the suspension is changed.
