Alex,

Simply fantastic. Not only do you have an incredible collection but your taste is evident with the interior decorating of your "stable." :wink: Would you mind telling me with what type of paint you used on your garage floor? Again, very, very nice.

Now, the big question is,"...if you could have just one?...." :)

Forza,

Dane

If I absolutely had to keep just one it would come down to the Dino (for its beauty and grace) and the 575M just because it is as good as a car can be. The 575 would get the nod in the end.

The floor of the garage is an epoxy based paint which is pretty much impervious to anything including hot oil and gasoline.

It's pretty pricey at about $2.50 per sq ft installed, but it should last literally 30 years and just needs to be wiped with a wet mop occasionally. This type of finish can be done in any color and some people even mix in sparkly pieces and other add-ins to give it the look of granite. I prefer basic gray because the cars are the focus, not the floor

Your garage is one of the nicest I have ever seen. Your Ferrari collection is superb.

I am in the process of painting my shop floor with an epoxy based floor paint. I chose muscle gloss brand for a couple of reasons. Their web site has some good info. www.musclegloss.com

I have used Drylock brand also, and it works well. The only problem I had was with "hot tire peel" The paint softens under the hot tire and sticks to the tire. In all fairness to Drylock, that garage floor was stained pretty badly and it is possible that the concrete was just too stained to get a good grip.

I etched my new concrete floor last weekend, and I hope to put the paint down next weekend if the temperature stays above 65 degrees.

Steve,

Great post. I've been continuing the search at stores such as Lowe's and Home Depot but have had no luck. Thank you for the tip. Do you suggest any type of a primer for floor that has been stained? Thanks very much.

Forza,

Dane

Glad to help

Behr makes some really good stuff for concrete cleaning and prep. If your concrete is stained pretty badly with oil and grease, their degreaser/cleaner works well. Then etch the concrete before you paint with the Behr concrete etcher.

I rented a high pressure washer to wash out the shop after I let the cleaner soak for about 30 minutes. I scrubbed the stained spots with a stiff brush. A couple of the stains took a couple of treatments.

I am looking forward to trying the muscle gloss. I purchased the red because it makes nuts, bolts, odd clips and stuff easier to see. I will update you after I get everything done.

My jaw hit the ground when I saw that picture....that garage is the most beautiful place in the world. LOL! :green:

If I am ever in Arizona, I may humbly request a viewing of it. You are a lucky man. I would be tempted to just stand in front of them and tell myself how lucky I am...then drive each of them. :wink:
