To all: Make sure all gouges that created and raised metal on either the hub or the spacer are removed before reinstalling spacers. You can use a file, sharp deburring "knife", sand paper, etc. Go slow and just get rid of the raised metal. Such raised spots probably would collapse under the load of the lug bolts, however, its just good practice to be safe, conservative and to do a job "the right way".
yeah i gouged up my hats pretty good on my first removal and used a drill attached wheel to smooth things back out before reassembly. once i took them off once it became easy. its an art of sorts.
