Remember.... concrete only has 2 properties.... it's gray, and it cracks.

I had an Alfetta in the '90s which when purchased had an ANSA with the fake exits. I bought a replacement ANSA (~1996?) which did not. I always assumed the design was changed for some reason.

I still remember taking the car in for emissions testing when it had the muffler with the fake exits and the technician scratching his head trying to figure out why the probe wouldn't go in.

Now that is funny! Well that's the mystery solved then. Maybe that will be VW's next diesel emissions trick - fake exhausts.

Don't be embarressed Takeshi. It's what's inside the garage that counts.

Does anyone have experience with using the epoxy floor coatings over old (1947) and oil-stained slabs? Is it possible to degrease and clean them enough for the stuff to stick and last?

I'm a building contractor and I have contracted out several epoxy garage floors.

The professionals use diamond grinder pads on large floor machines to prep the floors so oil stains are no problems.

Done properly the finish will last forever.

The important thing is the moisture content of the concrete, if you have have moisture in the ground under your concrete, the finish will not last.

I may have mentioned this earlier concrete is an excellent medium for drawing out moisture. When sealed it losses this, If I was to seal concrete I would have a dehumidifier in place. Epoxy finishes are great in climate controlled environments.

The older I get.. the faster I was....
