First Post Ever..First Mod to my new (old) van..Very excited

Hi, I am new to the forum but I'd thought I'd post my first modification to a used van I just purchased. It is the first modification to a lengthy idea I have but this was essential before i could do anything else. I stared with an 03 extended 350 that was owned by a contractor and as you can imagine, the rear was a mess. It had a mat in from the factory that had insulation underneath that was completely soaked for some reason when I picked it up. I ripped the mat out, scrubbed it down "several times" with degreaser, scuffed it up with a strong scotch-brite pad and used a spray on bedliner product called U-Pol for the deck and halfway up the walls. I am really happy the way it turned out cause I'm not usually the handy type. I will post pics below. By the way, forgive me if I do alot of question asking on the forum. I will be picking the brains of the experts while I continue my projects.
