    My situation is unique. My shop is for my plumbing business and I made room to build a Cassutt inside it as well as my motorcycle addiction. It's about 900 square ft and has a bathroom and utility room. Customers come inside and we review construction plans etc so I keep it clean, hence the floors. the flooring is industrial VCT from Armstrong and I get oil and metal chips on it all the time. I just clean and wax it when required.

    It's tight but I'm happy because it's a tax expense and a lot of fun. My shop is blast to work in even though it's small. Many people work in a tight garage so I feel blessed.

    I rebuilt my shop to accomodate a Cassutt and I'm still waiting for final occupancy actually.

    Same here, when I squirt brake kleen and some of it gets on the sealed floor it gets sticky. After it dries up its smooth again like nothing happened, which is a good thing. Sealer sure makes for easier sweeping, which I get to do a lot of.

    The smartest move I made was sealing my hangar floor. Just wipe it up!

    Shop looks pretty Kool, and I love the little Christmas tree. Tell me thats NOT your skateboard though.

    Re: The humble Port-A-Band

    I'm 45 and still skate vert ramps and bowls.

    That skateboard I got from pro skater Steve Caballero. He won the Vans Tour 15 years ago with that board. That is the actual personal board he used to win the competition.

    I've been hitting ramps for 35 years. I grew up with a full half pipe in the back yard.

    When I got it my Son freaked. Couldn't believe it. Instead of hanging it up we took it out and hit a skate park. Felt pretty good although my board feels better. Lol.

    I recently took down my sons half pipe in the back of the shop. It was torn up anyway. He moved on to lifted 4 wheel drives and girls. I like the athleticism of the skaters but the culture is not anything I want to be around. My son kept his visiting skaters in check. "pull up your pants and don't call my dad dude".

    Re: The humble Port-A-Band

    I'm not sure what you mean by culture but my son and I have a blast. The skate parks here are full.of really good kids. I seem to be the only parent that skates though, which is funny sometimes.

    One of the best secrets to life I've ever learned was to never let the old man in. You can feel him creeping in, biting at your heels. Don't let that SOB in, I'll skate till I'm either dead or my legs don't work. Every single skate friend I had growing up stop skating, got fat, lost the mojo to a bag of potato chips. Screw that, life is too dam short.
