Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI used it three years ago and everything the other guys have said is true. Epoxy paint is tough as nails but it's very fussy about surface contamination. The garage floor I put it on was 40 years old and pitted from salt drippage off of the cars. Added to that was oil under where the car engines were.
Here's how I did it, this was in the middle of the summer. First I scrubbed it with a degreaser, then came the 4000 PSI hot water power washer with a rotary nozzle. I kept the nozzle a couple inches from the floor and I took lots of time. Took me at least two hours to do a 20X30 floor. Then I degreased and flushed again. Then I used a cement patching product to trowel over the pits and pocs in the floor. The next day I washed it with the acid to etch the old cement. After that it was sit and wait for it to dry and that might be several days. The instructions tell you to tape a sheet of plastic down in one spot. Next morning you pull up the plastic. If it's damp on the underside the floor is too wet.

The paint I put down popped up in a couple of very small places (maybe 2 square inches each a couple of days after it dried. The floor must have been too damp in those two places. One person told me the paint will come off where the car tires sit but that hasn't happened to me. If you do use the glitter a hand held grass seeder might do a more even job than throwing them out by hand. Read the instructions. Good luck and let us know how it turned out. Remember-CLEAN AND DRY! When you use epoxy you should not scrimp on the preparation. Jim

Thanks everyone. The garage is below the house and insulated so it stays warm but our night temps are getting down into the low 40's. I don't want to take the time to prep to get a night of 30's which I think would be too cold. I may just degrease this fall and do it next spring. I was hoping to get it done before winter so I could keep the plow tractor in there but I don't want the salt on the floor first,
