… did you select the kind with the sprinkle chip things, or just a straight gray slippery looking finish ////

Got to have the sprinkles.

LF did the epoxy floor in the garage.  She has a 2sq. inch area that bubbled up and popped😕

Did she actually do it or have a company come in and apply it?

Glad you're drying out Carl.....been worrying about you.  Actually thought about putting together an "intervention" at the Pilgrimage but couldn't find anyone sober to help.

Yea, good luck with that.

Finishing first coffee... sometimes it's only one pot, not today. Reading the news sans paper came across this, car guys check out this spectacular paint job on the hood of a movie car. Looks like glass or giant cinnamon hard candy.

Candy Apple Red in its truest form!

Good idea, no one would want to be around you if you were snowed in AND had no coffee. :lol:

I'm a little over half way there.  My sister in law dropped out last weekend but son in law and my wife are still dry with me.  On another note the garage gets sprayed tomorrow and the floor is scheduled to be epoxyed in Feb 1st.

Good deal, it's always good to change things up, if it's not a real problem it's just a habit you got used to.

After all the weeks hanging out at Rodney's talking with him about Pilgrimage and working on the Museum, I got burned out on drinking and just have little interest anymore, socially is about it. This can happen when hanging out with Pro's who seriously practice every day, they don't play around.  :wacko2:

Last drink I had was on the cruise 10 28 18, but it was a week long tasting hanging around with a crazy bunch.

Hard to believe that didn't work. you could have included it with the Audio Collectors Addiction group to up attendance.

Walked back in the kitchen saw the pot was finished went to grab a cup.....I never put the coffee in the filter.😡

Done that before, and just stood there feeling really dumb, it's all I could do. :mellow2:

That is a great color, I haven't seen that in a long time, I can see why it was so popular.

Our painter did it.  Followed directions but if moisture is in the slab or comes up from the ground the coating can fail.  Lucky just a tiny area....so far.

Never tried that but a good bit of acid etching and sealing with clear, very tough and permanent. 

The only problem I had was the last thing I did was a 12' x 12' porch and a 12'x 15' room, the clear only came in 5 gallons so I just put many coats on both and it ended up as slippery as ice. I thought the slickness would wear off kind of quickly so I didn't add any sand for traction, I was wrong, it took months for it to even get a little better. Inside it wasn't so bad but the porch was dangerous if your shoos were even slightly damp.

But I love the stuff, extremely tough and easy to work with, the clear dries in about 15 minutes and you can coat again, it applies with a normal roller and easily goes on and levels out perfectly, but does stink when drying.

Eldon, you need some of this, much better than sand. It will last a long time.....https://www.hcconcrete.com/product/sharkgrip/

Looks like fingernail polish too. Don't know if it is the actual color that they used to put the laquer plus four coats of clear on the hot rods. But it literally looked like those cinnamon discs to me when I saw it!

That s&it is not cheapo acrylic paint!!

There are 2 part systems that you can get and have applied.  The one I'm having done is by a company that does nothing else but epoxy flooring.  It's the same industrial grade stuff they use on plants where fork lifts drive over it constantly.  They'll diamond grind the slab first to rough it up then apply it.  I think that @dwilawyer had something similar done in his garage.

In Wisconsin (and I'm sure other places) a lot of the cheese manufacturers have the concrete floors with a top layer of concrete and a polymer of some kind. If you ever need to get through the floor it is really, really hard.

I'm sure they told you that if the atmospheric conditions weren't right they'd have to reschedule. Dew point was a big deal with the two part coatings I used in the 90s in FL, do not know if that could be different now. The self-leveling epoxies and urethanes are fascinating to work with.

We just had our hanger floors re-done. Took one month each. Here is with the LED night lights on from 40’ up

They either did not backroll or there is a corrugated ceiling reflection there.

 I've seen that too, on some painted floors... except when I pulled up the carpet in the den, it appeared the original house construction crew felt it necessary to apply texture and latex everywhere lol... I got it all off before the wood floor people showed up...

When I built my house the painter sprayed PVA primer all over including some on the floor. I said WTF? He said well you're just gonna cover it. I said yea but does thin set mortar adhere to PVA? And not for 6 months but 25 years ya Azzhole. You're fired. Spent the next 2 or 3 weeks cleaning it up before putting down tile and hardwood.
