I've heard Bondo does a good job as well.

I used Sherwin Williams grey epoxy. I did mine in 2008 and no peeling so far. I did not use a top coat clear. If I want it looking new again, I can scuff the floor with a buffer and recoat.

If you want, I will dig up the exact part number.

For an old floor I cant say but when you guys are pooring new, check BASF product call'd Mastertop, in US it's Mastertop® Anvil-Top®300

Check it out, by far best thing you can put in your new floor.

In Europe its been widelly used in any kind of factorys, parking garages, shopping malls and so on. Any floor that has to stand for hard use. You can stained if you want.

Made my garage 7 years ago and still looks like new. No bad thing to say. It even prevent oil and other liquid s absorbing into to congrete.

Just happened upon this thread and would like to offer my suggestion, I had a local company install this finish in my garage:

http://www.parkplacegarage.net/garage-flooring.html

Apparently it is called: polyaspartic polyurea garage flooring

I am not sure of the construction but the stuff looks unbelievable and is exactly as advertised. Its tough and does not leave tire marks from hot tires. Super easy to clean as well and does not stain.

Hey Mark
First off...thank you. I have forever been influenced by your builds and attention to detail. Second I can't provide any great I found for finishing your floor but what I can do is suggest you check out www.garagescapes.ca they are spectacular cabinets and come in many colors,top quality drawer sliders and hardware. Email them and they can give you all the info you will need regarding sizes,options.colors, construction etc. If you do decide. To check them out please mention my name...I work for them..could help with price lol

I had a friend do a commercial epoxy floor, and while it was maybe slightly stronger, they had to redo it a few times because it never matched(gloss/color/etc) and still doesn't. It wasn't cheap.

I don't have any experience with anything else other than raw, which I certainly wouldn't do.

BTW, I introduced myself at B-J over the weekend, but you were busy with the Z28. Enjoy watching your builds.

I agree I did self applied grey Rustoleum 2part epoxy from WW Graingers supply and it's pretty bulletproof if the concrete is properly prepped. I even had a brake master cylinder leak brake fluid on it which was undetected for about 2 weeks and it didn't hurt the coating on the floor.

Any pictures? I've read the product sheets online and it sounds interesting.
