Looks great Clarence.

Good lighting is huge. My new garage is really nicely lit, and it has inspired me to add more light to the existing one. I have not put them up yet, but I have bought double bulb 6' florescent lights, one per bay.

What's the brand of the floor paint, and how is it holding up? I want to do this, but have reservations.

http://www.armorgarage.com/ I used the 2 part process with the flakes. It's been durable for the last 6 years. I've drpooed tools, ladders and other stuff without issue. If I were doing it again I would use the 3 layer high gloss. It's easy enough to do yourself.

Belgian - I wish I had your or any Camel Trophy to park in there!

What color are those cabinets Clarence? It looks like a burgundy with a black stain over the top. Looks very nice.
And 16' ceilings? You definitely need a lift!


Brett, nice 416. Any pics of it behind your truck?

Clarence, that's some nice work!
What type of epoxy did you use on the floor? (it looks like Pebbletec, as in what they use in gunite swimming ppols, only smooth surface) looks really nice. (EDIT: sorry, I started typing this half an hour ago and was distracted - now I see that you've answeerd my question - sorry)

Lighting is definately key! I'm stuck with low door header clearance and low ceiling height which may be unfeasible to correct, but you'd got plenty of storage volume to work with and have definately maximized it. I gave up trying to work on my toys at my house. Now I just go off-campus to my uncle's garage, which is a slick set-up that I hope to copy someday.

The cabinets are burgundy with black trim. It's powdercoated but only time will tell how well they holdup.
I wish I could get the lift now but I spent all my money on the garage for now. Hopefully, I can save up a little to buy one in the spring or summer.
My garage project started out relatively small, just some new cabinets and I just kept adding to it.

Clarence,
What paint did you use on the floor ? In search of the elusive best epoxy floor paint. I have spent hours on the garage forum reading and still don't see a clear winner.

I did mine in a black and grey flake. Some sort of epoxy that the company tossed on the floor and sealed in. Super durable but I hate the flakes. I always think the floor is dirty. If I did it again I would go a solid color.

Don't those have a "texture" to them as well? I always thought that would be an issue when rolling around a floorjack/etc.

Slight texture but not enough to affect the jack. Doesn't chop easily either which is good.

Here are some pics with my other car. The company striped the floor then sanded it level before starting. The even went up the foundation. I think of I did it again I would strip the floor and just stain the concrete, then seal it.

In terms of epoxy, I will never again epoxy my garage floors. After doing it on three different floors, nothing holds up to welding, plasma, and dragging parts. If all you do is park in your garage, then epoxy is a good option.

why is it that you park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?

I left the flakes out of my floor because I prefer the clean look of a single color. The dealer warned me and he is right. When the floor is wet it is SLIPPERY!!! Anyway here are some shots of the garage. Still need drywall, and a basement for all my junk.

By the way Clarence, your garage is my dream. Good job.

I don't want slippery but like the single color too. I thought you could something like sand in to give it roughness without the flakes?

I have heard others complain about it coming up hot tires etc which I don't want, but in my case this is for the princess garage so it shouldn't get a lot of abuse.
