Bought a set of headers used from some guy. There seems to be a little damage around the collectors. Will this damage affect the seal? Sorry if the pictures are bad.

File/grind/sand flat ,get all of most of it cleaned up.
Then use copper rtv and or soft alum. / copper Gaskets. You'll be fine.

I'd fill the holes slightly with some extremeheat JB weld, sand it smooth and then use copper gaskets. A little overkill, but i'd rather do the job once.
