I'm out here in Idaho and manage to create repair shop for Dodge Cummins trucks. So far its been a busy fall and winter. Like this weekend I had a friend wanting to barrow the shop so he could fix cooler lines on his Chevy truck. So I figured I would share my tiny shop here.

This spring I plan on degreasing the floor and resealing it. Then instead of concrete water based paint. I'm going to just use a good quality oil based paint. I'm going to repaint the floor white again. That is so nice to have a bright white floor. Then when your working you light reflects under the truck and there is very little shadows or need for shop lights while you under a vehicle. Drop something on the floor... No biggy it shows up on the bright white floor quick. Missed a fitting? No bigger you'll see leaks quick.

Cheap ___ water based paint!?! Any oil or anything spilled on it would make it peel right up.

I painted my apiary equipment storage building with this paint that I bought at Lowes.  It dries to a very tough and durable finish.  I diluted the first coat with 1 pint of paint thinner to each gallon of paint.  After that dried to a tack, I painted on 2 more coats.  It is oil based, cheap and works well.

Much more in my price range. I would most likely do it in bright white though...

Here are the pictures, my van was setting for a week with no ECU since I had to send it out for a bench flash, and the blizzard delayed my one day shipping to almost a full week all told.
