coupler pocket done

Today I finished the second coupler pocket.  They are not perfect, being hand ground instead of made on a mill.  I guess if I want that perfection someday I can grind out the weld and make new ones.  

My next question is what to do about the plate above and below.  See at the ends how the coupler pocket is 1/4" from the side frame. and see how at the corners it is rounded.  The blocks I have on top should have a bunch of metal removed to next neatly around that joint.  Is that worth doing?  Could I just dab some epoxy in there before I paint?
