Your car looks amazing and the cart looks really cool. Bet it's a blast to drive too.
Looking at your nice garage I thought of the best coating you can put on the concrete floor... epoxy airplane hanger floor coating.
It's the best there is and nothing is tougher. It's easy to clean.

You can clean the floor with Tide laundry detergent, water, and then scrub any dirt and oil off with a push broom. Hose it out and let it dry good and you can etch prep the floor with muriatic acid. Let it dry again and follow the directions on the container or on the internet.
It could increase the value of your home more than the cost of materials.

Something like this would probably work well.

Hope you move the car out of the garage before using that bench grinder

Can be very slippery however. I've busted my ass more than once. Get a little greasy and a little rain comes in, its like ice. Might consider sprinkling some sand into it.

Thank You. The Kart racing is going to be a blast. I used to race Quarter Midgets at his age.

I'm aware my garage sucks. The floor is the result of a 5 year remodel. Painting doors, trim and cabinets in there without taking the time to protect it. The garage is coming up soon. I need to strip and apply a self leveler to the floor. It's very wavy. I'll coat or tile the floor after that. And I want to install one of those sweet cabinet systems. Maybe over the summer or next winter.

I've worked a couple places with this type of floor finish and never had a problem slipping in it. I guess it could happen but I always wear sneakers.
We mopped the floors when they got dirty and they clean up easily.
Mixing in sand would catch on the mop or sponges and make cleaning it completey impossible.

When I worked as a boat builder many years ago we would mix some sand in to the white epoxy gel coat that was applied to the top surfaces and floor of the boat with a roller so people wouldn't slip on it when wet.
Worked well when barefoot or wearing rubber bottom boat shoes.

I epoxied the shop floors, and the only negative is that it can scratch and chip.
If I could do it, I'd tile the whole place like a dealership's workshop but talk about $$$$...

Just this one. It's an entry level class called JR2 LO2O6 for its use of a Briggs 6.5hp engine. (better known as the 912 replacement engine. ) For all new stuff in a faster class your looking at $8k or so. Car, motor, data system, safety gear. His class is a couple grand less. Used will save you 30%.

First day on track.

Why not go polished concrete. Im sure there are contractors in the area interested in doing the work. If you are interested, i could make some calls. I work in that industry.

And that's the 912 Special Wishes option, too (.5 hp more than the standard issue) - nice!

So this happened this weekend. I loved my 981 GTS so much I got another one. This one will be converted into my race car and I will campaign it in GTB3 next season.

I saw the same style/color of car yesterday driving home and thought how seeexxxy that thing looked. (and not a dirty Rawknee Sexy way) I really like the way the roofline and rear fenders come together.
