That may be personal preference. It does wear off. I didn't like it. I Worked in a shop with it for about 5 years in the 90s.

I would salt from your truck will be hard on the concrete I put two coats on mine it wears off where the truck sits. It's also easier to clean and less dust when you sweep, as much as you have invested in the floor I'd protect it with sealer.

I'd seal it , I did mine so the oils and spills won't soak in as much. also it is a lot easyer to sweep with less dust.

have you considered an epoxy paint for your floor?  makes it much easier to clean when you drop that oil filter etc.

Got a day and a half in pounding nails, I would lots rather be hauling wood!!!  But the reward at the end will be nice! Me and my 71 yr old uncle will have half of it framed as of tommorow. He will be working on his own next wek building sections of wall and when i get home we willl stand them with the truck.
