Brilliant! You won't regret it. I installed one of these recessed scissor lifts when I built my garage, and it gets quite well used.

How are you getting on with your scissor lift?
I am awaiting planning permission for my new garage/workshop, and want to get similar.... I'm looking at this one. Is there enough clearence to drive the Elan over/on to it?

I have also been looking at the built-into-the-floor ones (as it won't be much extra effort whilst it's all being built), but like the 'portability' of the one I linked to so I can use it without having to shift cars arround.
The garage will be 7m x 6.5m, so I could have it built in - but if I want to use it on the elan and the Triumph is in the way, it will be more awkward......

.... decisions, decisions

If only there were enough head room for a 4-post lift it would be easier :lol:

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....
