Just clean the floor with soap and water and let it
dry. Plan the tile layout. After measuring, I laid out a row in each
direction to see how I would deal with the ends. I kept a full tile next
to the wall near the walk path which left about a half tile near the wall that
was less visible. If you can, use a full tile near the garage doors as
well. A cut tile at the back of the garage is not a problem and mostly
covered. Use the best contact type glue they recommend.
Follow the instructions.
I put down about a 6 foot X 6 foot area at a time. The walls are edged
with vinyl boarder molding glued on the block wall. At
the garage door an
1/8 inch thick x 1 inch rounded edge molding is glued in place and
finishes it off. The end result has been in place over three years with
excellent results. (Note: the small 1/8 x 1 inch edge molding has
loosened and contact cement was used to put it back. This occurred several
times so I tried Gorilla Glue--it's holding great!!)
The mechanics crawler rolls nicely over the floor. Its easy to sweep
and clean. For my Corvette and my wife's Crossover purchased 3' x 3' rubber mats
that hold the air-conditioning condensation which usually drips for a while when
we pull in to park. It gets hot and humid in SC!
The photo of the car up
on stanchions shows how much nicer it was to work in that environment.
Gibbon made the fiberglass stanchions which keep it up 12 inches. They
are very study, much better than jack stands.
