    LZ that looks great. Really the look Id like to achieve.

    Bulk buying seems the way to go.

    I was just thinking the same thing, I use it to roll under my car on the 4 post that I can only lift about 55" with the car on top.

    That floor looks great BTW, makes me consider doing mine, but the cost deters me. My floors are not terrible, but just a lot of scrapes from the previous owner's sleds. Your garage looks to be a 12 x 20? I've got two 20' x 20' garages to do, which would be $2K in material, plus my time, and I could f@ck it up, which tells me leave well enough alone.

    You can see it in this picture in front of my son's sweet GT3. LOL

    Would a good sealer go pretty far in preventing oil stains? Clean, etch, seal? I was at home depot today and saw the sealer but it made no mention about being used alone (as in only used before the epoxy, but that might just be how it's marketed). It might be a good stop gap until funds can be allocated to that job. Which may be never once the barn gets built.

    Don't cheap out on sealer. I get mine every her from a suply center i Tonwanda down the street from Gander Mountain. Expensive, nasty, but quality product. I roll it for coverage.

    I did a bit of painting over the weekend. Here's a few before/after pics. It doesn't show too much of a difference. The walls weren't too bad, since they were covered in hundreds of pictures. The hard part was removing the thousands of staples. Each pic had 4-6 staples

    Here are some before pics:





    Here is an after pic with the lights on. It's very bright inside now:




    I bought 4 boxes of this stuff. I really hope it's all I need. This shit gets expensive!




    I'm going to let the paint dry for a week, and next weekend I'm going to degrease the floor and get it ready for a skim coat of concrete. I don't expect a perfect finish because the one corner is raised up a bit, but I'm optimistic that it will look tons better.

    Is your floor all pitted or something?

    There are pits in a few small areas and a bunch of shallow cracks, that this stuff "should" fill.

    Will that resurfacer act as a painted top coat?

    I don't believe so. It's just concrete. It's designed to smooth out the existing concrete. It's a step that you can skip depending on how smooth your floor is to begin with.

    Gotchya. So would still need paint or epoxy on top.
