Default Leveling Help

I'm getting a little discombobulated trying to get this level. I've tried tilting a little both ways and got rejected each time. Any help would be appreciated.

Go in between the 2. You went from leaning to the left to leaning to the right. I'm using the Engineer corner of the nose. Both look pretty close. Maybe .2 or .3 CW from the 1st.

Might want to try leveling with the bilboard signe in the background on the right hand side of the photo. That stuck out the bigest to me when looking at both photo's. It's leaning pretty good to the right.

I'm with WAB on this one. The post of the billboard is probably vertical

Thanks for the help. It got in after I turned it CCW quite a bit. I guess that billboard was vertical, but it looked to me like lining that pole up would have really tilted things to the left so I never tried it. I was in the same mindset as EMT and using the cab to try and line things up.
