Krypton Garage

My new toy box is complete. Room for 2 cars and several bikes on the floor. There's also enough ceiling height for a lift as long as they're short like the Elise.

Floor is professionally stained and etched with the tile pattern.

Very nice. I hope it dulls up a bit with use or you'll be doing lots of mopping to keep it looking good.

Yeah, the one big downside with dark shiny floors. Someone needs to invent a tire cleaner to be placed just outside the door!

OWW! it hurts my eyes just to look at the picture. I can't imagine being in that garage without wearing sunglasses.

Krypton was my first choice
I ended up with Chrome Orange though and I do love the warmth of the color. KG is still Da $hit though

Wow! I have not heard of the acid etched concrete with the tile pattern before but I think I might love it!

I can understand being new to a forum. What I don't understand is posting a reply to a thread on a forum where the original poster (OP) hasn't posted in 7.5+ years.

We need a new crazy around here. I am going to revive a red panda thread or dig up a lovely troll who thinks they can do a better job designing a Elise and willing to argue about it.

This place needs to loosen up some.
