Re , paint everywhere except the spot the nut was covering.

I dont detect any circular scored marks which would imply the nut was tightened against the plate.

I would shoot some paint onto the bare metal and continue on
That’s what I ended up doing but noticed one of the frame mounting brackets wasn’t welded to the Bumpstops mounting plate. So sent an email to etrailer hopefully gonna get another set

Have some more pics but thought this would tells enough
I just bought a set from etrailer and mine were dirty as hell as well. But it looks new to me, just dirty. Probably just sitting on a shelf in bulk and collecting dust.

I didn't notice any marks or scuffs that would lead to me to think bolts/washers had been torqued down either.

Look at my previous post. Were both of your frame mounting brackets welded to the bumpstop plate?
