First time porting heads

Well, I finally got the courage to start porting on my "062" Vortecs. I'm gonna fully port the exhausts and just barely clean up the intake ports along with gasket matching the intake and heads. I'm cutting the guides and seats, pulling the pressed in studs, tapping and installing shoulderless screw studs (gonna run self-aligning rockers so I don't have to cut the stud boss) and hope for the best. I think I am done with the carbide cutters on the first head and ready to do the final finish on the exhaust ports with cartridge rolls. Here are a few pictures. Please let me know if you think I'm headed in the right direction, completely off base or just plain ruined this head already. If I haven't ruined the head, please give me your advise on how i'm doing and any tips you have. Thanks, Ted.
