Ah, the garage is finally coming together!

This should be a nice place to do some work on the truck, car, and bike this winter...after a few other tweaks.

First of all, I'd like to thank Fred at Alpha Garage for answering all my questions and providing great customer service! Now, on to the pictures:

Before pictures:








Out with the old, in with the new:




The drain was patched in with Rustoleum 100% solids epoxy patch (not shown here, sorry)

Washed




Ground


Cracks I filled with the Rustoleum epoxy (before pics)
















Finished













I'm very pleased so far, but it is early. I'll need to let it cure for a few days before I drive on it. It's ok though, because I now have to paint the walls and ceiling to match the motif:beer:

540 ft2, about 20 hours labor not counting cure time. If you're going to with Wolverine, I'd recommend buying more Bondtite (primer and clear coats) since I found this to be difficult to spread evenly. I had extra Liquatile (the gray), so that went on nice a smooth and cured to a smooth finish. Also, buy a spiked roller just in case. My primer coat had some bubbles, but they were hidden by the next two layers. So far :thumbup:

I have a good idea for a nice paint scheme and need to add some better lighting. I'll also be building some proper work benches over winter. Any other suggestions?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thanks guys, we'll see how it works out. Wolverine's system (I found it over on the link silverback provided) is 100% solids and a three part system. They pretty much guarantee no hot tire pickup so long as you allow it to cure properly and the surface was prepped. My fingers are crossed.

I have some countertops for my work benches, but I still need to make them...probably over winter. I would love some cabinets like them but I still have sticker shock based on the last time I looked!

Thanks guys. I am in the process of finishing the project up now. I am almost done with the paint...lighting and workbenches to follow as I get time. My wife is getting cranky since this is the first major project in the house and she wants the living room painted. Priorities, priorities, priorities!

I'll post a pic when it is done.
