Similar. I’ve painted my garage, and taken all the rust and oil out of the concrete. Etched with phosphoric acid. Starting to look good!

Nice! I tried acid etching 4 times and couldn’t get the sealer off the concrete. Had to rent a diamond grinder.

Wow that looks awesome🔥. I’ll probably go the cheating route and buy those fake tile or fake wood that snaps together for the garbage.

Thanks. Nothing wrong with that, I’ll get a wild hair up my @$$ and decide I’m going to do something. And I’ll do it until I get it right or my wife gets mad and I have to hire a pro lol.

It’s all in preparation. You either clean it and hit it with various chemicals. Or you say effitol and grind the top layer off.

Thanks, I’m in the process of editing an install video. I’ll post a link once it’s done.

Existing sealer is a pain to deal with. But with a grinder, at least you know it will adhere properly!

Paint job, and chemical rust/oil removal:

Nice work. The diamond grinder is definitely the way to go. 2-3 days of prep with acide was done in 4 hours.

I pressure washed, then scrubbed did this process 3 times. Acid etched 4 times and still couldn’t get the sealer off. Rented a diamond grinder and it was done in 4 hours. Rinsed the floor 3 times, let it dry blew out and existing dust and started priming.

Yeah, the acid needs to react with concrete. With sealer you have no choice,:since the whole point of sealer was to seal it against that in the first place.

I was fortunate not to have any sealer, so it was just a matter of one strong pass with the acid.

I also do not trust myself with anything that can cause lots of damage...

What’s your cabinetry? I’m looking for good rolling stuff.
