TR2/3/3A Prepping the grill for installation for my 1960 TR3A

Ok, I have some installation hardware ordered for the grill. Spire nuts, fix nuts and screws. Do I need to do any prep work on the grill itself? Screw hole cleanup or other detail cleanup? It looks like it just came off the stamping machine. I see some flashing in the screw holes but the rest of it looks resonably clean.
Your thoughts and comments greatfully appreciated.

If it were me, I'd be sure to check the size of the openings and open them up if necessary. I think the specs are on TeriAnn's web site.

A good coating of paste wax before installation might be a good idea, too. The aluminum is going to want to corrode, any place it touches steel.
