I don't see chips on the dog gear but rather the face plate. I don't think those small chips will cause any issue with the performance of the transmission. Here is a link regarding shifting advice from Hewland.

FWIW, I installed a similar dog box last year and very much enjoy the reliability versus the OEM FD 5-speed.

Thanks for reply. I am same like you. tired of braking OEM transmission

I think I will install a ignition cut off switch on shifter so i can no lift up shift and still protect

the pictures show a very nice transmission. the edge of the dogs do not look bad at all, this is normal wear and should not be any problem. wish i had pictures of the race trans I had, them dogs look nice. mine were beat off in the corners and it still worked good, high rev pull hard and still made the gear. That trans was in a 65 nova alki car making 500hp it never broke or missed a shift............just sayin
