Looks good IMO.

Would you grout it though?! all the dust and stuff will get into them joints!

I've seen pics of similar before it's quite common in America. I'm sure the first time I saw it that it was a bar floor.

Once they're laid I'm sure you need to put an epoxy resin or similar to seal it and IIRC the article I read previously said it was easier to maintain and would outlast traditional flooring.

My thoughts would be if you wanted to change it though it would be a right PITA to have to lift them all

Just pour coke over the floor from time to time. Good as new lol.

I suppose then the issue will be a sticky floor.. At least the coins will be nice and shiny though lol.

Wouldn't that make the garage cold in winter and slippery?
