UCoat-It versus Griot's Epoxy Garage Floor Paint

OK, a few of you were waiting to hear how my brother's experience went with the epoxy garage floor paint from Griot's Garage. (http://www.griotsgarage.com)

Here is my brother's take on the Griot's paint. First see these posts on page 12 of this thread to read what has transpired:
Be proud of your garage!

The Griot's epoxy is very, very thick. The mixer they sell to attach to your drill is a must. The vertical areas around the edge of the garage that need to be painted with a brush are a PITA because the the thick liquid tends to string. But the floor is not a problem as you can just pour it on and then spread it out with a roller. Overall my brother is happy with the stuff. Here are his photos:

I used the UCoat-It and was not pleased with it. Read my review on page 12 of this thread. I would have to recommend the Griot's over the UCoat-it. It is thicker, covers better and is much cheaper. Floor texture can still show with the Griot's but not as badly as with the UCoat-It. However, done properly no 2 part epoxy coating will lift. Again, here is a photo of my shop with the UCoat-It.
