Best tip for aligning the fin I ever got was to use a piece of string from a T-pin at the firewall, looped around the fin, and back up to the firewall again. Very slight adjustments will easily show if the fin is straight or not.
I've used it many times, and it is dead simple and extremely effective.
Use it with Jims squaring process for fin to stab alignment and you'll have a winner every time!
