Default Extreme MakeOver Garage Edition

OK,.....maybe not extreme, but a world of difference
We are 97% done. We need to do something with the extra cardboard. Unfortunately, I still have an oil leak, so I need to keep one under the vehicle.

Boy, I can remember the days of having a garage. Now I have to do everything while under the stars.

Thanks, I still have some organizing to do.

It'* a two part epoxy coating made by Rustolium with color flakes we sprinkled in the wet finish. 1.5 gallons to do 400 square ft. $40.00 per gallon after $10 dollar/gal. rebate.
It dried enough to walk on in 24 hours.
I waited 1.5 weeks before I drove on it.
It'* only a one car garage and the wife gets it most of the winter (Note the snow shovels in the pic) because that'* the kind of guy I am, but it'* nice size. Better than none..

Wow, nice job on the floor. Looks great!! Those Tonka trucks have to be worth some big bucks today. I used to have some but they they were used for target practice and I was really mad!!
