Garage setup!

Am going to have some space to setup a garage where I can service my Elise! Any tips and recommendations? From ramps/jacks to toolkits?

I don't know what I like best: air compressor, painted floor, 8' florcesants, white walls, or rollaway tool chest. I guess if I was starting out I would do the floor first. The next thing on my list is a lift. Good luck.

A common regret in all of my garages has been insufficient lighting. Easy enough to fix, but I never seem to get around to it.
