< CL guy. (Confirmed I am heading your way in the morning/midday Saturday)
Upon seeing more of the pics, are those pics as they are currently? or are the JB weld fixes to the curb rash not shown? (images 3 and 5 respectively) I would be performing similar JB weld repairs wherever the lips weren't perfect, unless you have already done so.
Also, since I don't know... what is the material on the lug nut locations? I see its rusted up, but shouldn't that have been removed during the other stripping processes? I would hope to clean that up myself, since painting over them and then tightening the lugs would probably chip the paint.
Is the aluminum sandable? or would I need to do a heavy primer and then lightly sand that to improve the quality of the surface finish?
