Still waiting for the shims. I expect they will be here soon as I received notification last week they had cleared customs. Meanwhile, I was able to set all the exhaust valves close to .014 by making an aluminum collett to hold them, and taking light cuts with a sharp carbide cutter, then lapping. Making a toolpost grinder with a die grinder was also considered, but this worked. I also found VW shims from the 80's can be had in 31mm diameter, so if I ever do another, I would seriously give them a close look.
