Sorry if I'm asking too many questions but getting prepared for my new arrival (used plus 8)

The Morgan will live in my garage above my car lift, one of these....

https://geg.co/product/eurotek-mrs3-scissor-lift/?v=79cba1185463

Will it have enough ground clearance without having to make additional run-on/offs. My MGB has plenty of clearance and fit without problems but thats going to make way for the Morgan. If I need to make run on/offs thats fine I just need them in place prior to collection which could be this week.

Thanks in advance

Gary

welcome have you read the guide on the welcome section?
Malvern arms is general moaning and jokes.
Vehicle Talk is for non-Mog car discussion, daily drive, moaning about Electric cars and speed limiters.
Car model (Trad, Aero M3W) is best placed in the Morgan cars section in the next block. There is a little discussion if the Plus8 (Modern Aero chassis) lives in the Aero or Trad section so best to monitor both of them in some ways. If you have a Trad or Rover V8 then it tends to live in the Traditional section.
Anything with a social edge to it that may draw strong responses is generally saved for the soapbox as this is behind the login and so the spiders don't index it and get us a "naughty site" listing.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

another TM member - 'Hamwich' - has a similar car lift which he has posted pictures of before.

He has a couple of planks (one either side) to give a little extra ground clearance.

I'm sure if he sees this post he will be along to offer some advice.If you can figure it out, you could send him a message direct (look up the user name and then send a 'personal message') thumbs

I've put scaffolding planks rawlbolted to the concrete floor either side. Works a treat.

Hi, thanks for the replies. Mine is the type that is the same width as the car (the link show my actual lift). No need for anything wither side, just wondering if I need something before and after the lift areas. Not very well explained but the link should explain it better!

cheers
