Nice vette and garage Bud!

She looks comfy. Like the floor to.
I guess tile floors are best to have in case of oil. That way concrete isn't there to absorb the oil and cause a mess? That's nice. That's something what I'd like to do when I get a Vette and house/garage.
Bud what kind of tile is that under your Vette?,I like the look and might do the same.
They are a vinyl 12” x 12” self-adhesive type floor covering. The only problem I've had with them is Jack Stands NEED to be on a small 3/8" or so piece of plywood, so they don't cut through the vinyl and, when I let the car down off the stands the rear wheels settle and push the tile a bit. ONCE I figured this out I haven't had any other problems. Originally posted by kevoinc Bud what kind of tile is that under your Vette?,I like the look and might do the same.
They're easy to replace if damaged, just use a putty knife and remove the damaged one and put a new one in it's place . I really like them, they are easy to keep clean, and everyone that has seen it thinks they look good, esp. with Rare sitting on them
I got them at Home Depot they where either $.89 or $.99 each, they are Armstrong "Afton Series".
Prior to putting the tile down I had painted the floor, that was not an easy task to remove. I spent more time on my hands and knees with my grinder and steel brush wheel making sure all the paint was off than actually setting the tile. 2 LONG weekends to remove the paint, 1 long weekend setting the tile.
OIL LEAKS... bite your tongue... not in my garage at least there shouldn't be any leaks, esp as much time as I spent changing almost every gasket on her.
YES the neighbors think I'm a 1/2 bubble off plumb
Tile floor looks good! How is it wearing?

Looks Good, Bud! I'd like to do my floor like that now that the 82 has a new "garage". Maybe a drop ceiling and florescent lights are in order. I thought about a roll of linoleum but your way would make repairs to the flooring more practical. Way to go!
