Myself, I would use a rotary tool [wear eye protection] to clean up the rim, and hide the damage as best I can with some paint.

Are you leaking oil in the 2nd pic? New clutch cover is $75 from Partzilla.

you can sand it out on the wheel when you swap for new tire next time(1000miles unless you want to get different tires before that)
i got myself a new clutch cover with other parts before for $45, remember to order the gasket too most likely you will rip that apart from try to remove the cover(the repair guy was like 85% chance failed to save the gasket). I'd rather replace a clutch cover rather than the damaging inside just in case I'd crash again

Clean it up and get the paint. It won't be perfect but no one will look that close.

If it's not up straight no oil would show if it's fill to the right level.

Checked the Oil Level yesterday. Seems like enough or even to much, but it is dirty like Mud? What could that be?

:/ a head gasket. Coolant. It makes it turn to sluggy mud.

Well I honestly don't know which gasket.... but a gasket. You probably have coolant leaking in. Pull your spark plugs. See if they're wet.

Okay. I found the Service Manual. But still can't find the Standard Manual. Seems like much work to check the Spark Plugs. Need a Air Pump to blow away the dirt. Don't have one. Mhmm.
