New RaceDeck Garage Floor for the 02


Recommended Posts

SO jealous. I have wanted a garage for a long time... if only just so I could lay down a nice floor like that... That looks fantastic!

I have Race Deck in my garage and here are my observations:

1 - Really easy to install

2 - Black is hard to keep clean even after mopping several times. (I have 2' x 2' silver and black square grid pattern) Silver looks good though

3 - You have to put something under jack stands or wheels of a jack to keep from "denting" the floor - not really a big deal. I just keep some extra scraps of the flooring around for that

4 - The sun hitting directly on the floor will make it "buckle" which is annoying. Yes, I have about a 1" gap all the way around. When in shade, goes back to flat.

5 - Makes my neighbors very jealous

6 - Durable. Mine has been down for 3 years and still looks new

7 - Nothing I have spilled seems to affect it - acetone, thinner, carb dip, brake fluid, oil, you name it....

That is just too cool. How is it when it's wet? how well do shop tools roll on it?

I'd really like to go that route. For me it's been either money for cars or money for garage floor...

I use to have an epoxy garage at my old house. that stuff wore like iron (the only chip was from an engine block that dropped...OOPS!!!) Prep was key. Muratic Acid, while a PIA, is what you really need to prep it.

Thanks for sharing!

i did epoxy too. mine is a working rather than show garage. too much hassle trying to protect a pretty floor from jackstands, etc. dark floors also make it more difficult to find those tiny parts you drop.

i used homer depot rustoleum floor epoxy. as dave said, prep is critical. mine has been down for 10 years of really hard use now. worked great. as with Dave, only thing to bother it was dropping something huge and sharp on it that actually chipped the concrete.

now if i had another garage i just used for parking pretty cars on, racedeck would be what i would do!

Looks amazing! I epoxied mine about 10 years ago...it has held up but is showing its age. I would love to put down some RaceDeck.

Which version of tile did you get?...it looks like the Free-Flow that will drain (another problem my garage has).

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
