Looks pretty.

That gash on the piston.......if its really bad you can sand/file any grooves down a little. Its more of a problem on turbos in creating a hot spot that may cause detonation but otherwise all looks good.

In case you are wondering don't touch the cylinder walls ............even if your buddy next door says that you should remove the glaze with a hone. Just nod your head and ignore him.

When you are done cleaning the pistons........... coat the walls with a little oil and turn the crank over a few times.......... As the piston rings push any residue/dirt that may have fallen down the sides to the top...... you can then wipe it off. But on that note try not to be too messy when you do clean it.
