My new garage floor thanks PPOT!

Some may remember that I posted on suggestions as what to do with my tools and such while my floor was finished. I opted for the u-haul solution, which worked great! I just want to add that this floor was done the old fashioned way, I rebuilt and installed a new motor in my neighbors truck in exchange for the floor. I guess some old time values are still alive and well. This is an epoxy high build floor with three coats of clear. It took 5 days to do this, and I'm still working on the rest of the garage, drywall and painting. Enough text, pics now.

Power-washing away many 911 and other engine pulls took a day:



Etched and all then divots and such filled in:



Day after its painted and cleared:



Other side "the Porsche bay"

That looks so nice that I'd paint your wall where your garden tool collection is hanging.

It looks excellent, kudos. I assume your home is new enough that there was a vapor barrier installed prior to placing the garage slab?

Otherwise, why won't it (eventually) start to fail due to moisture migrating to the surface? My house is so old it has nothing under the floor but dirt. I would love to do this kind of job on it.

Brilliant! Will make it so much more inviting sneaking out in the garage during those winter nights, sitting behind the wheel, going 'Vraauum vroooom'!

I'll ask what he used on it, he does this for a living and I didn't recognize the product names except for the "zep" he used to degrease it. And yes it has a vapor barrier thank goodness. As far as the color goes I didn't get a choice on that unless I wanted to pay for materials

Absolutely the bomb Scott. Me like a-lot. A job like that for a 3 car generally runs $2.5-3K round here.
