Yes , I have to go thru a FFL , no biggy , yes there is paperwork involved " I dont care I have alot of paperwork already out in the world, I get fingerprinted every 2 years for my job and I have nothing to hide from anyone so I just dont need to go that route , however it would be a fun project for my kids and I to call our own .
So after its completed there's nothing needed to do? 100% legal even without a serial number? Correct me if I'm missing something lol

Your serial number, name, and address should be stamped in after completion.

hers another one in the jig now,theres no better feeling then finishing your own lower,and getting them stamped is personal prefrence.also i've been told by a couple people that once they are finished they wont touch them because they are now a firearm but we have them ingraved and anodized once they are done.

Please tell me you're joking about even thinking about using JB WELD if you mess up????
I mess up it's in trash and I start over, wouldn't even think about using JB weld to fix a mistake on a firearm.

It's perfectly fine to use JB weld on a lower. The lower receiver is never pressurized.
