I have kept my eye on this thread for weeks and what can I say - good job! It takes some serious cohones to take on a task like this and you succeeded!
Bah. It's just a lens; it was originally assembled by normal human beings, so it stands to reason that one can repair it competently.
Now, if he'd been working on a truly special lens - like a Goerz Dagor - it really would take cojones (note sp.) And talent, and incredible skill, and superhuman and -natural powers, because these lenses are special. The person who designed them is special, the men who made them were special, and the photographers who use them are special, because they use them. And of course the photographs made with them are most special of all. Even the subjects which are photographed become special.
