Garage Floor Coatings

Now that I've finished the Healey restoration, I want to dress up the concrete floor in my garage. It was painted about 15 years ago and has some bare spots but is oil free. Has anyone used an DIY epoxy product that has performed well? Many reviews I've read indicate problems with hot tire pickup and other failures. I would like to apply it myself. What would you recommend?

You need to remove all the old, properly etch the concrete, eliminate all oil stains (100%), and the result is fantastic. Prep is a lot of work and is key to success (and dusty and potentially hazardous to your health if proper safety measures are not taken).

I've used Benjamin Moore and PPG paints, both very nice.
