I have a lot of years on you and I am feeling young. No problem measuring the track. If no one has done it by morning I will do it for you.

I just down and under for you. Inside of tyre to inside of tyre, very close to 1.26 m. That is 4' 2", near enough for this purpose.
BTW, you have only 2 years on me but I'm going to live forever. So far, so good!

If you can’t or won’t measure the width between your tires to size the tool, how are you going to do the alignment job??
