That's no different than it was a half-dozen years ago. They didn't  
have any new housings then either and were sure it was the end of the  
World. yet here we are.

Funny, it worked for the 787B. It might not be the same, but I don't  
think we have enough information to dismiss it off-hand. Did you  
specifically mention that it was a ceramic coating, not just a  
"recoat"?  There have been shops that tried to just "recoat" the  
chrome onto the housings. That does not work.

We've talked. Not going to happen for a few years. :-)
