I am starting the prep work on the floor of my garage. I filled in the hairline cracks and am now beginning to grind the entire 750sqft with a 4in grinder... going to take a while but trying to save money and would rather spend my time. It goes decently quick but will for sure take hours to complete. Also to note, I live pretty rural and the home improvement stores near me do not carry grinders or rental tools for that matter.

I am currently grinding, then onto a degrease, primer, base/flake, and clear.

1. How long do I wait between primer and base, then base and clear?

2. I leave for vacation soon and was hoping to have primer down before I leave. Is this fine to sit for 10 days or do I want to apply base shortly after applying primer for better bonding?

3. Have any of you used GarageFlooringLLC before? I plan on using their High Solids (93%) Epoxy for a blend between better durability and cost compared to the DIY kits from Lowes and Home Depot or a professional epoxy. All in about $1100 (Primer, Base, Flake, Clear Top Coat)

Any other tips and tricks would be helpful. Cant wait to see the final result!
