Is it just me or are your frame rails mangled in that 5th pic?

Not really a frame rail. The pinch welds are flat from jacking it up at races to change out tires. Look at alot of autoX and track cars you'll see the same issues.
They were like that when I got from the PO, and I made it worse. I changed the jack spot and use wood block and lift under the mirrors behind railing now.

The "frame rails"under the car have some flat spots to but they are not really structural anyway.

Every time someone mentions jacking the car "under the mirrors" I picture someone using a Hi Lift jack on the mirror itself.

Why is your OP so high? I never see my gauge up that high.

And its only a tad bit lower. Always has been. It is a idiot gauge anyway

Dummy OP gauges should show about that high normally.
