here's mine in progress.
This is the same house I was brought into this world and introduced to Motorcycling. "i.e. my avitar" Check out "Then and Now" in Pics,Pics,Pics.
General view :
This is my little 1400 ZZR (for sale ) :
My wife's GSE :
My track/pleasure bike (since I was a little boy, accompanying my father to the manifestation of angry bikers, I dreamed of having one. It's done. :) ) :
The last bought, my Adventure's bike :
And finally, the workspace : :)
(don't make any caution about quebecian car plates, I'm trully french (so, sorry for my "mauvais" anglysh ) )
Question: I'm looking into floor covering in the garage, either a RaceDeck type tile or one of the standard Urethane type coatings that so many manufacturers have out now. In addition to these, I was wondering if anyone has thought of or used a Linex/Rhino/Herculiner material on their garage floor. The product I am looking at specifically is U-Pol Raptor. It is Urethane based, so I think prep would be the same as for any of the mainstream floor coatings.
You guys are the experts, what do you think? I am definitely leaning towards the U-Pol. I have Linex in my Jeep tub and am a huge fan. The U-Pol has the best reviews of any of the DIY stuff; chemical resistant, basically chip proof, and as a DIY product it's easy to repair should you happen to gouge it. Is there any reason this wouldn't work?
Sounds like an interesting idea -- should work. Try it on a small piece of concrete -- paver stone or something -- and see what happens.
The only real downside is that once you do it, your stuck with it -- I'm pretty sure you'll never get it off the floor.
I'm a fan of race deck type product, but haven't pulled the trigger. I've been considering buying an old volleyball court (same stuff), plenty of it available at a good price.
Thanks for the input. I'm still very much in the planning phase, but I'll be sure to post up when I start the work.
At half the price of the Racedeck, I'll probably give the U-Pol a try first. Worse comes to worse, I can just put the tiles down over it.
This thread is motivating me to clean my garage.
clean garages very honestly kind of freak me out.
Mine is a bloody disaster right now, as I am wrapping up a 4x4 build

Here's mine, it's not huge but it accommodates me well so far. I have another single bay that I can grow into if I need too! Oh, it's inevitable, it will happen!

I installed some old street lights from Red Wing, MN in my workshop today. Of course, I swapped out the old ballast for a traditional incandecent light, then screwed in some compact florescence. I used them as task lighting above my future workbench. I'm very happy with the extra light over the worktop. Can't have too many lumens in the shop!
And yes, I know, I should be spending more time on drywall and less time on tearing apart an XRR.... But I can only take so much drywall in a day.
That's a nice space!
My sister in law's new garages:
Left Garage, under the house:
Lots of space, clean, porcelain floors and concrete walls painted.
Nice place, and very functional! Here is a party for their son's wedding they held in one side:
Serious looking go karts.
Poland or Romania ?
Funny you say that, many mistake Northern Portugal for Romania. Even the accent on the language seems similar.
That was my next guess . Very nice .
Amazing work, and damn cheap too!
+1 to that.
It is quite obvious that some garages are "Man Castles" and others are simply clean auto storage
