Default front hub ruined?

I was cutting off the rivets for the front hub and I scored the surface. Is this hub junk or is there enough of the surface around it to make the rotor sit flat?

Don't know why but my pictures have not been uploading anymore. I had no trouble in the past.

Hopefully you can upload photos. I usually drill out the rivets.

I cannot get the pictures to upload into my post. When I hit upload the page just disappears. I did find the picture under the gallery tab.

measure front rotor to 1.280 and determine depth of the scoring.

It wouldn't bother me to run it on mine.

Nothing wrong with that hub, in fact you should grind around the holes to remove high spots that will cause runout. The factory facing is clearly shown and I would guess there is runout in that surface. It doesn't matter. Deburr the inside of the rotor hat or countersink it. Bolt on the rotor using the lug nuts or by tapping and bolting them on. I set the runout to under 003" but 005 will work.

Thanks All. I'll clean it up a little to make sure it's running flat. When I get the front together I'll measure the run out with a dial gauge.
