An uplifting weekend

Adding to the constant list of things that keep me from moving forward is recent garage renovations we’ve started on. Part of that work is to move the storage space from above the secondary garage / work shop to over the main garage. It’ll require a good bit of framework added to above the main garage to support the weight, but will clear out the space over the secondary garage. The other thing this allows us to do is add a four post lift, and that’s what this weekend consisted of for me.

We had a DirectLift Pro Park 8S dropped off this past week, and I got it all laid out and set up this weekend. Once the rest of the framework is removed and the garage door set to run up along the ceiling, the Barracuda will be stored on top and the lower space will have the Morgan chassis rolled in for me to start measuring it again.

    Hallo, I am from Holland. The project looks very interesting. I look forward to see the complete process of the rebuild.

    What I was wondering: Is it possible to buy the old steering wheel? I think that with the progress of power you have in mind, a steering wheel like this one is not strong enough to keep you safe on the road. So, if there is an option to buy this wheel it will make me very happy!

    Hope to hear from you soon,

      Hi Machiel,

      I won’t be selling off any of the original parts, at least not in the foreseeable future. I may try to reuse the original wheel, and even if I don’t I’d like to hold onto the original parts. Since you’re over in Holland, I’d recommend checking out the TalkMorgan forum (linked to on my “Morgan Related Links” page), you may find someone with the parts or a parts vendor a lot closer to you than I am, and probably with a wheel in much better condition.
