Default New Project - Machine Shop

I've always wanted a commercial property where I can store and work on some cars, and was finally able to purchase something I could afford with enough room and potential to be a functional workspace. This building was a machine shop since the 1940s and went through a few additions but only two owners, ever. The floors are pretty gross and the place is generally filthy after auctioning and moving most of the machines (I kept just a few for my own tinkering).

I'm pretty excited but pretty overwhelmed with the size of the project. What would you guys recommend for the floors? I'm going to need to spend a lot of time degreasing them, and dealing with some spalling and a few divots. I'm thinking about foregoing epoxy and instead, grinding them as best I can and sealing them. I don't think the epoxy will adhere due to the decades of oil exposure.

Anyway, wanted to share this with the folks here and post periodic updates as I make progress.
