Valve clearance check... take 2

Once again, after 11500km on LPG, I decided it was time to check on the valve clearance. This time the engine was cold, so the measurements should be more accurate than last time.
After removing the engine cables, the coils, the spark plugs, the valve cover breather and, finally, the valve cover, I could take a reading on those clearances... these were the values measured:

Intake valves: 0.25mm
Exhaust valves: 0.35mm

Since the problem is the reduced clearance... I'd say I have a pretty good chance of getting away with it.
