Well pulled the pin on it this weekend and just cleaned the floor up vigorously and added the sealer.

After that hit it hard with the floor paint and so far happy with the results.

Not the best picture but... you get the picture :rofl:

Great service and next day delivery from these guys.

Looks good in light grey. How much paint did you need in the end?

5 litres of sealer all gone. Plus 2 x 5kg packs, a bit thin in places but excellent coverage.

I had a bit left over but couldn’t really get back in and use it to patch up the thin spots. Happy with it, it feels rock hard too.

Have been busy putting everything back already and it doesn’t mark up at all so far.

Onto the next phase of better lighting and storage etc. next.

Now it’s dust free it feels transformed

Yeah keeping the dust away makes all the difference I was choking on it every time I brushed up. Got some 18” sealed fittings free off a job along with a load of conduit and fixings etc. Made good use of them. Have a plug in paint inspection tube and plug in work light for extra help.

I was looking at LED with a couple of 22watt 5 feet battens

Plus il keep the two 500watt halogens for winter and a lighting boost when needed.

The LED flood I used on the drive is amazing..

Used two pack epoxy paint on mine. After it’s gassed off and hardened it’s damn hard had jacked up my car on it and hasn’t even scratched it.
Love that floor
I started renovating my garage about two years (similar construction to yours) ago to house my Z, fitted plastic pipes down the lengths of the wall and then large heavy duty foam pipe lagging to protect the doors when they are opened in the garage... the walls are painted white and now I've got the floor to do, but thats neat what you've done
Cheers man just need to finish the walls white, wood and metal work black, put some 1ft wide rubber Strip on the walls, add some more sockets and will be all done! Finished giving her a full decontamination, polish and wax the other day so she’s back all snug in there. Big thanks to forum member Estoril for the cover. Good man!
