If you want to give your garage or shop a show-room look, and not worry about it being able to stand up to normal automotive wear, check Ucoatit out. http://www.ucoatit.comis where you can buy the stuff and browse the site. They have everything you need from material estimator that will calculate how much material you need to a shop with a floor that can change from one color to the next giving you an idea of what the finished product will look like.

I wanted to paint my garage floor. It had to be a good looking and tuff enough to endure an automotive envrionment. Searching on line, I found Ucoatit. They produce several products to include a surface gloss coat that is designed for automotive floors. The price was a bit high but for what I wanted, I was willing to pay a bit more. I have a two carage and purchased enough product for 517 square feet. The total was $487.00 for all the product, rollers, gloves, buckets, and a video of how to apply the product. It was a two phase system. First, prep the floor by cleaning it and degreasing any stained spots. Then I used muratic acid and scrubbed the entire floor with a stiff bristle broom. After rinsing the acid away, I wiped up all free standing water. The first step is the Bond coat, it is applied on a damp floor. After that dried over night, I mixed the GlossAF and applied that coat. The AF=Automotive Finish is supposed to be very durable for an automotive envrionment. Once I applied the Gloss coat, I shut the garage door and waited 24 hours. It dried to a high gloss finish and changed the garage floor from a regular concrete floor to show room finish. Highly recomended! Now the floor is easy to keep clean and looks great.
