Sorry guys, I never got an update for this thread and missed your posts. Possibly due to the thread being moved at some point into this new section. Dunno.

Thanks.
I never laid the paint down however I have done it before in another garage. I don't really care for paint because in time it needs maintenance. The floor I have has worked well over the years. Ideally there is a gel material that you can use, far more expensive but well worth the cost. My father was quoted $5,000 for a large 3 car garage however he ordered the stuff and installed it himself. I think the materials alone were over $2,000.

Sorry, it's been so long I couldn't tell you. If I come across a Griot's Garage retail mailer I will get back to you. They have held up well over the years but in the future I am considering installing the gel flooring. The tiles clean up easily however they do show their age. With that said they are very versatile and I have yet to break one parking my rig on them even with studded tires.

Thanks for the reply John and the tip. I have always used Xylene to clean the flooring. I have never found that 'perfect' concrete cleaner however I will consider using some Trisodium Phosphate next time.
