All in all. She went back together quite well and it was a quick jump start lesson on the Boxster.
Why not just find a used flange. Maybe from Woody (itsnotanova)?

Someone with more knowledge can chime in, but adding nuts to the back sounds to me like you're asking for trouble. For one, it may throw the axle off balance.

Can't re-tap? If not with a larger thread then with an SAE thread.

I feel like your best course of action is changing the cup out for a new one.

If you cant afford the time to fix it right the first time... When will find time to fix it again?

Do it once the right way.
