OK Jim, I'll take your suggestion and just clean it up. I'm going to use silver paint though. Photos are being uploaded.
Unfortunately that lower bolt is not wanting to come out, even with heat applied and those are mighty small bolts to try to drill and extract but if that's what I have to do so be it. Not fun.
