If so, I figure I've got three options.
1. Sand these spots down, clean them up with some acetone, and hit them with some touchup paint.
2. Although, it looks like there's some discoloring around the edge of the lug, which has me thinking the corrosion might have spread inside the joint, where inevitably there will be a failure. So, just let it go until this happens, and then find someone who can replace and fix the damaged areas.
3. Send it back to Torelli right now and have them strip, sand, and whatever else they need to do to clean this up, and then repaint the whole frame. .
