[DML] Reverse grinding

Thanks in advance from the helpful ones here.
Had my clutch replaced at a 30+ year transmission garage.
It's been a nightmare.
The job took a week.  He broke bolts, almost lost my repair notebook.
Finally picked up the DeLorean and it had no 5th gear and grinding to 
get it in reverse.
They 'discovered' the 5th gear upon a re-adjustment, and said the 
grinding reverse just needs to 'work in.'

(I'm kinda stupid, but even I know better than that.)

The clutch master cylinder isn't leaking.  It's full of fluid and has 
been bled of any possible air.

The mechanic said he had the flywheel milled.  I was told that's standard.

I just can't seem to get it into reverse now without it making the most 
gosh-awful grinding sounds. (Once there, it's o.k.)

Maybe they 'smoothed' the flywheel too much?
Maybe the new clutch plate was defective?
Maybe he dropped it before installing?

If only I lived within a day's drive of ANY Delorean Service Center...
