After a considerable amount of time sanding and scuffing the “new” and original respectively, I can say without a doubt that they’re ready for paint! :)

The “new” one above had been sitting in the sun for who knows how long and had very thin paint remaining. The original one below had all of it’s paint/powdercoat or whatever it was, so I simply scuffed it up and smoothed it down!

Thank goodness work just ended!! :D
