need closer pics to see how much meat is left on clutch plate.  Pressure plate looks like it's maybe gotten a bit warm in some areas, but still re-useable.
lol everything I say is just made up, don\'t pay any attention

When I were a lad they used to reface the pressure plate as well as the flywheel but if it is a stock clutch it may not be worth spending a lot of money on it. You could take it to Sterling brake and clutch on the corner of Onehunga Mall and Nielson st for an opinion.
