I used the Rustolium stuff and like Gary said I cleaned and tried out my new gas furnace drying and heating it for a couple days. I almost passed out putting it down the garage was so hot. Left the heat on it for a couple more days to cure. Trans fluid and oil or hot tires have not been a problem. It is a pain to clean since I used the color flakes. It was new concrete by the way.

More info from the site that finished the floor.

 Dense, polished surface helps protect against absorption of oil and other contaminants• Resists tire marks from fork trucks and other traffic• Harder and stronger than other floor finishes
• 40% more abrasion resistant than unfinished concrete • 20% increase in impact resistance than unfinished concrete• 30% increase in ambient light reflection from unfinished concrete• Flatter, more level surface
• OSHA recommends that you achieve a static coefficient of friction (SCOF) of 0.5 for
polished surfaces - HTC Superfloor™ SCOF wet: .50 and dry: .58
• Easily add color to existing concrete during the HTC Superfloor™ process

The other cool trick is to blend in some colored glass in the top layer of concrete. Then grind and polish. Not sure I'd do it for a garage, but great for an entryway. Looks really notable and different.

Test fit?  :)    Was there any doubt they'd 'fit'??     Appears you have room for several more in there...  :)

Painted, landscaped, ac works, garage doors work. Just need to touch up paint inside and and put the final UV coating on the foam roof.

I think it is just under 2 acres. Desert with three washes going around my house so plenty of wildlife. My Arlo cameras regularly film Bobcats, deer, Raccoons, Coyote's, Javelina, Scorpions, Snakes and even a Tarantula.

Very Cool. Have you encountered any of the wildlife ? or do they scatter when you're around?

Scottsdale Az. That Bobcat was just sitting there watching a guy plant a Saguaro that I had bought for the front yard. Just looked at me when I took the pic. Most of the creatures come out at night and the Arlo cams get them with night vision.

What would you name the "Javelina", proof God has a sense of humor?  Never seen one of these creatures?   Maybe a local sort of thing (ours would have webbed feet), they look fine to pet until they get angry, probably taste good properly prepared.
