For the weight you are contemplating, you can use the 6"x6" re-mesh. It looks
like huge hardware cloth. Concrete cracks just to bug you. Any car would be
heavy enough to add to the cracks. So you'll want something bigger than
chicken wire in it. From what I have heard, 4" should be fine for what you

You will get floor cracks if you don't reinforce, so you'll want something in
the concrete. But you can just get the 6" square reinforcing mesh if you don't
intend to drive on it.

This is just in the attached shop area, not the garage where the cars are.  I
will probably be able to bring in a long-term project car at some time in the
future, but it would be limited in size to say an MG Midget, and it would
probably not be whole, because it would be a project!

Do you think a grid of re-bar is a better way to go?  What spacing?  I really
don't want to go to the expense of more than 4" of concrete.
