I made the decision not to change the condition of my floors--- for now. They are lumpy/bumpy, but NOT rusty. I don't mind the work to pound out the dents, that would be fairly simple, but it would cause loss of undercoating on the floor bottoms. I don't want to tackle taking off all the original undercoating and putting new Wurth back on. Been there, done that before and it is not fun! Since these floors are solid and not rusty, they are going to stay in this condition for quite a while.

Photos below of how I will leave them. Ready for underlayment and carpet. The brown color in the photos is NOT rust. It is old glue.
