    What color is the red wall .... from which manufacturer of paint and the specific name/ color of the paint itself? Did you use a primer first and if so which?

    Yes. There’s a driveway access and alley. And another garage behind where I was standing.

    Benjamin Moore Exotic Red in eggshell. Just a standard white primer behind it. On my son’s wall, we did a gray primer before you trike red. This looks almost Rosso Corsa, but since our cars are not that hue, wanted a little more red and less orange. Didn’t make any difference really to put gray or white primer in this case. Almost went with “million dollar red” by Benjamin Moore, which is rather fitting!

    The floor also looks amazing, I presume some sort of epoxy coating, does it have reasonable traction?

    It’s a metallic epoxy in a mercury color. It has plenty of traction. I imagine a little more slick than standard, but have never had an issue. I’m told it does show scratches more easily, etc, but the overall effect is pretty neat.

    We used these high end LED units, against the outside walls we ran 18 ft (two 9ft sections) along the middle we put an 6 ft and a 4ft section due to pull down stairs being in the way. The lighting units are beveled at an angle to light “each bay”. I like the results and keeps the entire ceiling free of obstructions. We put them on a motion sensor so they serve as the garage door lights as well.

    The installers did it. I think they just push the product around.
