Just Painted The Garage To Match The Kr


Recommended Posts

Decided to paint the garage to match the KR. I liked it so much I am planning to completely redo the front work bench and peg wall as well. Always something to do!

Nice job for sure. Epoxy is great for floors, and I did both my garages with it and I do recommend it. One thing you could do with epoxy is put the color coat down and then out a giant Cobra, KR, or other Shelby sticker down before putting the clear epoxy coat on top...would look great. Word of advice for epoxy though, if you have any oil spots in the existing concrete make sure you really clean them with the acid wash prior to rolling epoxy down. And, if you have any cracks in the concrete make sure you fill them so that the epoxy doesn't lift up and crack off.

 

Ask me how I know. ;)

Epoxy base coat, top coat in clear urethane. Been there, done it!

 

Urethane will protect the epoxy from UV and other elements. I had mine professionally done three years ago and it still looks fresh as the day it was painted.

Thanks for the advice MC and Springer. Is there a particular brand you would recommend? I heard the kits you can buy at HD or Lowes are inferior to products such as U-Coat it.

I used the Rust-Oleum Epoxy Shield kit. I've used it in my last three garages. And yes, that floor does get mighty cold.

Have you ever had an issues such as peeling from hot tire pickup? Love your man cave!

Your garage looks great, I can't wait to build my next house that has a garage dedicated to the KR and my future Cobra or Ford GT, or GT350R, etc... Aslo, we have the same license vanity plate SHELB KR.

I'm jealous. :)

 

We only get six characters here in Alaska and Shelby was taken so I just have "KR"

 

I'm sure no body up here gets it.
