I used my Spark as a "Dolly" for a pan across my friends BMW 2002 with a S62 V8 Swap today... it worked out really well! The full video will have a lot of footage I shot with my drone as well. He wanted me to throw up a teaser video, so I put this up tonight. Let me know what you think!

Hey, for the wiper... I'm not sure (not my car). My understanding is that the car is done, so I guess it's intentional?

The only Spark shot was the "Dolly" shot in the beginning. I set the spark in "Tripod" mode and panned from the rear to the front. In post I reversed the footage so it'd go from the front to the back of the car. I decided to do this instead of actually going from the front to back due to the car being parked so close to the garage door.

As for the hood shot - that was a Hero4 Silver GoPro on a suction cup with a lavalier mic using a mic wind cover by the intake under the hood for audio.
