Didn't take my camera down with me yesterday, but did have my cellphone.

After much trial and error, the timing is finished - all the little lines lined up with all the dimples and notches. After reading the howto, I was prepared for the worst, but the biggest bitch of the whole thing was getting the old idler studs out (they must have used hulk-strength threadlocker). It wasn't strictly necessary to replace them, but much like the backing plate on the crank pulley, I bought replacements, and fucked if I wasn't going to put them in.



After this, I can put the timing covers back on, put the bypass hoses on, the inlet and outlet for the radiator, and that'll be it for the front of the engine before it goes back in the car.
