Lightbulb Laying Ozite!! Help.....

we are laying ozite for the first time(crc daytona ozite) its rubber backed and we are laying it on concrete...the concrete has a few painted lines on it and there are a couple cracks in the floor...nothing raised much but they are still there....how should we go about this to make sure it goes well??
we have the proper glue as advised by crc
what should we do with the seams
should we fill the cracks in the floor with some type of caulk or something to make them smooth ??
any suggestions will be greatly appreiciated.......
Thanks guys!!!............rick

There is a product called Jif-Set used by flooring people to help smooth out floors. it is self leveling. You can probably get some good advice by going to a good tile or carpet store (not Home Depot).

Endler- just remember the race surface will only ever be as good as the surface it's layed upon.....


BTW: use plenty of lube, I'm sure carpet is pretty rough on the old talleywacker...... Had to throw in the easy wang joke....LOL

On the subject of carpet. I was setting up a new track and it has office carpet already on the floor. Do I glue down the carpet to the carpet or pull up the carpet and glue it to the concrete? What glue do you use for it too? The ozite I have does not have the backing.

Turn the carpet upside down and tape the join at the back, or for a more permanent fix, glue the carpet to the floor and use a warm iron to ensure the join is invisible.
