I wouldn't bother. You can get there pretty quick by pulling the clutch slave and whatever you call the thing the slave connects to. I think it is the clutch slave fluxcapacitor clutch interface device, but I could be wrong.
Anyone that hasn't replaced the clutch slave should. It is about a 10 minute operation.

I brought this up at the SM Tent meeting @ the runoffs and have talked directly with Jeremy about it. It was received well, but with the standard submit a letter to the CRB to make it official.
We are doing it to all of our cars one by one when the tranny's comes out. If done correctly you can not only see the flywheel, but you can get a magnet in there as well to test for proper material on the flywheel and pressure plate.
Once I get time, I will work on a template for the tranny, so anyone can hit the right spot.
Pulling the slave thing won't allow you to see the pressure plate.

They don't care. If you have to present the clutch or flywheel for inspection, they'd just as soon hold it in their hand (after quite a bit of YOUR work) as crawl under your car. Who it benefits is YOU, who just might get away without removing your transmission.
A good thing, to be sure, but don't think you've got an interested ally in the tech shed.
