To install the tiles:
- Move everything from the area and clean the floor surface.
- Begin in the front left corner. Place tiles with female hooks facing away from the garage door and the wall you started next to.
- Work outward from left corner hooking tiles together to line the perimeter of the room. Fill in the middle with remaining tiles.
- When you reach a wall or obstruction, measure the tile and trim to fit with a sheer or saw.
- Leave 1/2″ between tiles and wall to allow for expansion/contraction.
- Enjoy! Drive around, Man Cave it up, fix up that old car, etc.
