    Looks pretty good.

    The swirlies look like undissolved coupler. Was there an oily residue in or on the developer solution? If so, that was your main problem.

    I don't remember any oily residue

    I know I was worried I wouldn't have enough coupler...so before each color developing step I put the film in a coupler/alcohol bath for a few minutes then into the dev/coupler....I wouldn't be surprised if I added too much coupler to be "safe"

    also...at the time I didn't know I had to remove the REMJET...so I wonder if that messed things up a bit..especially the red exposure

    I don't think I have an original scan...before Photoshop it looked pretty brown

    Remjet would have prevented any red exposure, but your examples seem to have cyan dye where expected.

    Interlayer contamination through exposure error or wandering chemicals can be a big problem. Too much coupler-alcohol can lead to oiling out of the coupler in the developer.

    I seem to remember black goop coming out after the first developer...but some remaining REMJET could have at least made red exposure uneven

    That could be the cause of swirlies too.

    The thing is that these films are made to a specific balance in layers and interlayers to match a set of 4 specific developers and it would be a rare event to get a good result out of a process such as yours. I recommend that you read the patent. All of those ingredients are there for a purpose.

    Farmer's Reducer removed the yellow stain on the Kodachrome perfectly...

    now it's a nice B&W negative

    That is to be expected, but you will have removed some of the silver in the lighter density areas and you will have shortened the tone scale.

    yes, it's definitely a fainter image

    I also used it on my Tri-X image developed in Thyme...the tonal scale is reduced to the point that...there ARE no tones

    Also to be expected, sadly. Now you have to do it again.
