Check out the video on youtube. The guy does an awesome job of walking you through what you measure and how to do it. Shims are not expensive, the kit just gives you 6 of each of about 24 sizes. From what I understand, part of the issue is you have to cool the car to take the measurements so it becomes labor intensive. Since the engine is out I can measure this weekend and order specific shims. Worse case is $100 for shims but in most case you can use some for other valves. I am not claiming to be an expert or even correct on this but it is certainly a job you can do yourself.
