I'd go with Wolverine Coatings. As far as color, somewhere I have a bookmark with probablt 50 different colors and chip combos. When I get home from work (just getting ready to leave the house) I'll send it your way.

Roger, Tennant Floor Coatings is probably the best you can get, but may be expensive. Years ago before retirement, I had a big aircraft hanger and all the support shops coated with Tennant and they still looked like new 6 years later. There was a 16 ton aircraft tug with chains on that pulled an airplane into the hanger, turned around and departed before the guys could stop him but he did not damage the coating!!! Their contact number to locate a distributor etc is 1-800 553 8033. I plan to use their product on my floor if I can afford it. We will go with a light gray or tan. My son is big on making sure it does not cause light distortion to screw up paint colors. He has young eyes that can tell the difference, I guess.

Trees

PS If you are going to use a floor coating, don't apply a sealer, otherwise you will have to acid etch to remove it!!!

roger, call barry knives at spi. the price is half of what you see elsewhere. it's just epoxy. one note, the cute little specs the sell to throw on the floor make it impossible to find something you drop ask me how i know.

I haven't decided on my epoxy floor yet.
But, I have decided to prep the concrete by grinding it with a diamond wheel cup versus using an acid etch. After I grind it, if I like the way the floor looks, I may consider just using clear epoxy. I have contacted the supplier for Wolverine coatings and their clear seems to be designed for good adhesion since it is used for primer also.

Update:
I have been working on taping and floating (done), installing lights (also done) and inside painting. Also, the restroom tile job is still ongoing. I am working on cabinet designs and will get those to a cabinet maker soon.
I'll post new pictures in a few days.

Looking real nice there! Keep up the good workmanship. I would put a lift in if you want to do any car work. All the big tire places usually shift out theirs on a cycle so you can get a nice used one cheap, or if you have the money you could get yourself a new one too. It saves you alot of time that you would normally be VERY painfully streached under a car if you are working on one. And there is a ton of other uses you can put those things too.

Updated Pictures

Things seem to be moving along slow at this point.
There is still much to do but I am doing it all myself since the contractors finished their part.

Here is the outside. I still have to do the painting. Then the fun job of finding a gas pump, signs and nic-nacs. Had a couple of loads of caliche fill hauled in to smooth it up around the building. Still some more work to be done though.



Here are a couple of shots of the 14X24 clean room. It is done. I just finished putting an epoxy floor down on it. I used EpoxyGuard. Put lots of lighting in there too.





Here is a shot of the blaster and compressor rooms.
They are done too. I put Quikcrete epoxy on those floors.(2 coats of color and 2 coats of clear.)



Here are a couple of shots of the restroom. One though the outside door of the building and one through the inside door.
It is done except for some trim painting and I ran out of epoxy grout for the floor so a little more to do on that.





There is still a lot left to do in the large (660 sq ft) area.
I need to decide what to do with the floor. I am leaning towards using the Wolverine epoxy system unless I get talked into using Racedeck.
Also, I am going to have custom floor and wall cabinets built for the south wall.
Here is what it is looking like now. I got all the lighting done.
Electrical final passed and am ready for plumbing final and construction final.





I used my extreme wide angle lens for these shots. It can make things look a little distorted at the edges in case you were wondering.

shop

My main shop in central Utah is metal 40 x 120 with minimal insulation .. very cold in the winter even with the wood stove going full blast.. how much head room will you need if you decide later to add a lift. we have 16 ft sides walls, warehouse racking for storage. My wife's farm near yellowstone park shop has a cinder block walls that are filled with ground newspaper insulation that her brother-in-law manufactured...sheetrock ceiling and a gas furnace. an nice place to work but this time of year it is filled with produce we sell to the grocery. that should be gone by january. I have been looking at the ICF type of construction. strofoam block-wall systems filled with concrete. very energy efficient in hot and cold weather. we have been talking about building another storage-shop and Quad Lock is almost a do it yourself except pumping in the concrete.

Cabinet Plans go to the cabinet maker on Monday

Here are my cabinet plans. I'll give them to the cabinet maker on Monday with half the money.

My plan is to get the floor epoxied while they are being built.
I will paint them myself with my spray equipment.
White or gray, I haven't decided yet. I do believe I am going to go with light gray for the epoxy floor however.

Garage Doors Painted and Hardware installed

Took me 2 days to sand, primer, paint (2 coats of oil-based) and install the hardware. A lot of work but I am very pleased with how they turned out.
