Cracking progress as usual, this will turn into an operating theater soon!

If you have the garage cleared out, you could try HVLP spraying for speed?

But of a boring one but have any of you prepped a garage floor for painting.

It’s covered in oil/wax/petrol, and the floor itself isn’t overly smooth with raises etc all over the place, but plan to paint it so want to get all of that off

I personally would use a scarifier to prep the surface. You can rent them so no major outlays. You can also look at the concrete floor sanders but they are significantly more expensive.

I'll aim to be doing the same soon. A scarifier will prep the surface and remove the old paint. I will aim to use a self levelling compound afterwards though...

Bit more progress

Got the roof done and I must say it totally transforms the day light inside with something to bounce off.

Hopefully get the lights finished this weekend.

Also got a few progress pics of the car and happy with how it’s coming along too. It’ll be nice to get it back knowing it’s got what it needs. 👍🏻

Still working away at bits and pieces but garage is almost finished now.

Had some insulating board left so built a frame for the other garage door that I don’t use and it’s keeping any drafts out.

Car now has all the repairs done and getting ready for paint too, bit of shaping and blocking beforehand but shape is looking great.

It’s actually been away about 2 months now, but my pictures have been delayed too.

A lot of work has went in and I’ve had a lot of updates and chats, and I must say the process has been enjoyable In seeing it get to this stage.

Big kudos to the man with the plan who did it, and he’s been great to deal with from it went to him. 💪🏻
