914 mechanic in LA

I'm looking for a mechanic in LA who works on 914's

Total Restoration Project

Within a couple months, I will begin a total restoration of my wife's 914.  I have limited overhead space (10 ft), and need some suggestions on lifting devices that will get the car up about 2 feet off the floor for a comfortable working height.  The cost of 2 or 4-post lifts are quite expensive, but would entertain pursching one if someone has experience of the best/safest mfgr.  Jack and block can be done, but I'm 71 years young, and want to find an "easier button".  Any positive advice would be appreciated.  -AL HEEP-

Odometer Verification

Model: 996, Year:99, Mileage:40000, Type of use:Street use only
I'm looking at a 914 and was wondering if someone could give me an idea on how to verify the odometer reading to make sure that it has not gone over its first 100K and on its way to its 2nd revolution towards 200K instead? ...any tell tale signs suggestions to look for that might help verify the mileage would also be appreciated. Slight rust marks under battery and under carriage (nothing extreme and no holes) hard to fix? Thanks.
