Was tired of the mess around the garage and decided to give my 9 a better "room".
My house looks like a museum but the wife and my kids show no respect to Daddy's spot.
A big dumpster and the rest... well, pictures will show...

BEFORE


After (just got done)

I could not stop from actualy laughing out loud.

Your before shot is roughly 25% as paked tight as my garage.:nojoke:

And, you should have seen it before I cleaned it out 2 weeks ago.

My kids went to grandma's home for their summer vacation and I decided to take over my spot. The pictures were taken to remind my family how I want the garage from now on. It was so drastic that I decided to share with y'all.
It was very embarrassing when friends come over and the inevitable question comes: "Can we see your bike?":redfaced::redfaced::redfaced:
Now she has a decent spot.:D

hey what did you do for prep work before you painted the floor??
and what sealer paint did you use?
This is the second time I do this and learned from my earlier mistake.
First you have to determine what finish they used (if they used any), latex of acrylic/zylene.
Zylene is the best but it can't go on top of the latex.
The secret is taking your time with thin coats and allowing 24 hours for recoating.
I did two since is the second time and came out great!
Latex prep:
-Wash with some mutiatic acid and scrub with a 3M abrasive pad (like the one we use in our kitchens).
-Allow 24 hours so the floor is completely dry
-Follow manufacturer's instructions regarding drying time between coats and do not allow tires to "sit" on the floor for the first two weeks.

Zylene
You do the same prep above and at the end you have the option for a high gloss sealer.

The brand I used in my house came from Wal-mart. Is pretty cheap and does the work.

I ordered a bunch of cool signs from ebay to hang on my walls and I'll post another picture once they arrive.
Take care!
