Can you see the that the blades look like something has been chewing on the edge? Is this normal?

Can't wait to see it finished.
The brownish plugs indicate a proper burn , white plugs indicate high temperatures which kills an engine.

As for the turbo blades looking wierd , i dont see anything :S
If you're refering to the blades looking as if they were razorblades it's perfectly fine

What are you having done at the shop ?

Swapping pistons is something you can DIY(As you've already pulled the engine apart ^^)
Im leaving my head/ block to a shop for honing the cylinder walls/resurfacing the head everything else i'll diy

Oh and remember to redo the valve gaskets , while you have the head apart that is
