Very nice!!

How bad does that stuff smell? I was thinking about getting it for the unfinished part of our basement, then the garage. (Make The Missus happy first, and then I get to play y'know)

I hear ya... basement is next for us..

The can says soap and water cleanup. (Warning) I used a good brush for cutting in and went to clean it with soap and water and It got all gummy. I cleaned it the best I could and left it for trash. The next day I worked the dry bristles and it softened up. I used it for cutting in the walls. It made a 99% recovery.

The paint does not smell much at all...They do make the same product specifically for garages and one for basements...AND they make a professional grade coating; Too much $$.

Looks really good, I just did the exact same to my garage floor but its a double, i would suggest putting down some mating for under the tires when the car sits, as it leaves tire marks, its nice an easy to clean up after you spill something on it though, youll be happy with it

Quite observant..Correct, no floor drain..Do you mean slope towards the door? Yes, it slopes towards the door. It is OK, but a floor drain would have been nice.
I think all water slopes towards the floor.. gravity I think they call it.

I saw one of those clean sweep shows on HGTV a couple years ago, where they did a family'* garage. It inspired me to go buy some shelving and storage solutions and re-do my garage. Between home despot and the container store, I got my stuff up on shelves and hung the bikes on the wall. There'* plenty of space for my Bonneville!

That'* one snazzy looking floor you got there! Nice job.
