He means like have someone with a high speed buffer polish down the scratches. Depending where you're at I'd be more than happy to do it free of charge as I run my own detail business. Some of it might be a bit deep but it shouldn't be a huge problem. Chris Fix on YouTube surprisingly had good video last year on fixing deep scratches like the ones on your car.

I was going to refer to this video as it shows a way to gauge the damage. Soapy water in a spray bottle, if the white in the scratch goes away it's able to be polished out.

Looking to find bolt #14 in this diagram, need a part number. Or exact specs for a trip to home depot or lowes.

Nope, no rubbing at all. I usually ride around at 24" FTG which i found to be pretty safe and usable. My fenders are rolled and pulled a fair amount too from before and at ride hight the wheels sit very flush, no poke at all really. Im on a 225/45 tire and ive got a decent amount of room left for a bigger tire

No woreies man ! Ill tell you for sure that this fits woth zero issues. Even though its 9" wide all around (which for the front on these cars is pretty wide) it has mpre than enough clearance, probably because of the lower offset of 45. Youll for sure have to massage the fronts but no need for the rears. I had my rears already pulled from my previous wheels but i wish i mever touched it. For comparsion sake if this helps for camber im running -1.1 front (just natural camber from lowering) and -2.0 in the rear. Hope this helps ! Haha
