Default Costco Motofloor

Just thought I'd share ... I wanted to raise the floor 1" 1/4 to get the hoist lift arms under my lowered 69' Camaro, and at the same time always wanted a nice Race-Deck styled pad for the car. So 3/4" ply deck strapped together and 140 sq ft of Motofloor from Costco and done ! Really love the look ...

So the Motofloor is 99% the same as Race Deck, in fact it comes out of the same factory, and is a very solid product. Assembly is as simple as lego.

You know you can buy a "tapered/beveled" edge for that --- would save you twisted ankles and the car would run up on it nicer.... not to mention it would be more "finished". Great solution to your issue BTW.

$139.99 for 48 sq. ft., per Costco online as of today...

So, 8 packs for a normal 2 car garage? ~400 sq ft?

Add in a couple "finishing" packs with the edges Greg mentioned at $70 a piece, it's a $1k+ job.

To answer Ned's question, looks to be about 20% cheaper than Racedeck but with a limited color palette and texture selection.

It's PLASTIC..... so that's an "it all depends" answer. A little or a lot.... how much amperage - how big is the wire - you welding 6 feet or half an inch.


I had this stuff upstairs in my man room (boys room if you're name is Gwen).... and I hated cleaning it. The diamond plate surface made it hard to vacuum... and moping was out of the question... and it does get scuff marks on it pretty easily.

Don't drag or scoot a chair on it because it will make a permanent scratch.

It's great stuff - can turn an ordinary space into a cool space quickly and simply - and doesn't cost all that much - and can be taken up and moved or replaced with new pieces...

Thanks Greg, ya I know ... still working on a way to finish the outside. "canadian' Costco's do not carry the beveled edge (screwed again) so I'm looking at a few other options as I have the 3/4" ply under it.

Cheers
