M3 Differential input flange nut

Hey guys, I've recently had my differential powder coated and unfortunately the guy who did the job didn't have it properly sealed and glass beads infiltrated inside the gears and bearings. My problem is that I went to disassemble the whole and clean the parts one by one and while doing so I washed up the marks on the input flange nut. Any ideas on how I could fix my rookie mistake?

Reinstall nut snug, it should go back on to original position without much torque, then just a tiny bit more. Then check with https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-730001/overview/
