I know that process well from owning a 67 Elan for 41 years. It isn't that tough if you take your time, measure carefully and double check your work.

Of course writing down and saving the shim sizes is key to keeping the process reasonably quick
Usually you have to do them once, bearing wear etc kinda make up for valve recession, although I would worry about that one shrinking clearance

Having restored an Elan and driven it 20+ yrs, will add that this is a PITA.
