Legit build! Dont forget you can always get a machine shop to machine the shims down slightly.. might be the easiest and cheapest considering how much the shims are

not much update but finally done with valve adjustment. ordered few shims frm my local nissan dealer and took at least a week to get 6 shims. then i needed more for the exhaust side so i ordered some frm nissanparts.cc actually got them quicker than my local dealer considering their in Washington.
Image

anyways.....decided to give this shim tool i bought frm egay!supposedly its for toyotas. at 1st, i was like...damn! this thing works awesome. till i took out the cams out and noticed it was scratching the journals. polished em with 2k sandpaper hopefully it'll be fine!
Image

Image

i was stuck how to switch shims around quicker and not scratching the journals. so i decided to fabbed my own bucket/spring pushed-down out of 304 stainless steel flat bar.

Image
Image

it bolts on to one of the cam cap bolt and pretty much press down on the edge of the bucket and shims pops off easily.

valve lash all done. 008" intake and .010" exhaust.
degreed the bc264 cams. i had to advance intake 2.5degrees and retard exhaust 2.5degrees to come close to bc cam card.
i see why BC recommend valve lash to be .008" int n .010" exh, with stock setting on cam jwt cam gear, specs are almost within the cam card.

can you show us how to do the electroplating? or reference a source?

I've seen it done on youtube but I'd like to ask how you do it.
