New Skoolie - Tailgating and New Company

Well guys, I must say I have been reading this blog for quite some time, and finally pulled the trigger last July in the purchase of our first of many buses. She is a 1995 GMC 3500 Vandura with 79,000.00 Miles on her. The seats have been ripped out already, we have lights and a basic sound system installed, as well as making some updates so far. We are die-hard husker fans, and the bus was purchased and maintained through the 2011-2012 season. Now we are in the process of finishing the paperwork for our LLC and are working on the bus. The following updates have been made:

Since Purchase:
Finished other limo style seating bench
new brake lines
ripped up the floor
new seats for back of bus

I wanted to get your opinions on how it looks, ideas to turn this into a Tailgating/Party bus for use as a quasi-limo bus, etc.

1.) What type of flooring, laminate, rubber roll-out, Diamond plated rubber squares, etc.
2.) How to build a good power source ie generator vs. Battery Bank?
3.) What do do with the ceiling, side walls, etc?

Any and all help from the masterminds on this site would be greatly appreciated!!!
