Son of a.... screwed up my valves. Help!

1985 325e 5spd

Hello all,
Greetings from the land of stranded after getting in to deep with my daily driver. I did a valve adjustment tonight, but apparently I got it all wrong- I started it up and was greeted with some very loud valve clatter. Way too loud and angry to drive. Getting to work tomorrow will be interesting.

So, I'm not sure what to do. I am scared of diving in again unless I know what to look for. What are the common things to screw up on a valve adjustment? I thought I had them all at TDC and with a slight drag on a .010 feeler gauge. Is anyone in the west Chicagoland area looking for something to do tomorrow night and want to help me get this sorted out?
