I can't really tell..... doesn't look awful to me, looks like fine scratches... The lower bushing rides on a film of fork oil... of course we ideally don't want any roughness to the bore, but..... I'd put in new bushings and go with it, nothing to lose.... lower bushing slides up and down inside the bore, worst that can happen is the Teflon wears off a little faster, and the bushing is copper and likely will wear first before the tube. Think of it as slowly honing the bore..... but down the road 10-20k, I'd pull the bushings again and see whazzup....
If you really want to get into it more anally, get one of those three-stone cylinder hones and a long drill shaft and (with some oil to lube) run it up and down the bore just enough to remove any perceived roughness.
Really worst case, find a used lower from some salvage place on ebay, usually the inner tubes/cartridges can be bent in a collision, and the lower bore should be unharmed. I wouldn't spend the bucks on a new part..... any fork leg from Gen2-3A will work, all the same... if it's the left side, then Gen2 will have a compression adjuster at the bottom, just won't be able to use it with the dummy cartridge on that side.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
