A buddy suggested just grinding the lid a bit. I don't think it is so close it is scraping more than just rubbing, so this might be a viable option, then just need to grind off the lid stop to allow it to rotate back far enough to take about a mm or so off that area and re-weld lid stop/re-paint lid.
