I mentioned earlier that I have considered painting my car with the black hood from the Nissan rally cars from the ‘70s over the original orange and made this mockup. I found these shots on Instagram where someone has done just that (although they missed the point and made it glossy instead of matte like everyone else):
I’ve been digging around the internet for the best deal on a rotisserie and this is what I have found (I am not really considering lifts without jacks but might go there if I have to. I am not considering making a rotisserie for a variety of reasons, even though I am certain I could make a fairly nice one on my own, so save your breath). In every case I will need to buy or fabricate the brackets that attach the rotisserie to the car, so I did not factor in those costs. After comparing a ton of them I have four finalists listed in descending order by price:

And then I thought about the color on this BMW M1, also from Speedhunters and came up with this:
Anyway, back to work.
I’ll just leave this right here:
