    Bill,

    Your humour was not unnoticed, and my reply was a bit tongue in cheek, even
    if unnoticed.
    Anyway, it sounds like maybe my best option is to just paint it a different
    color over the existing.
    For that purpose, what would you use ?
    I'd prefer something out of a can, if possible, and just mask optics rather
    than going through the grief of going back to metal, which is not my
    purpose.
    Cordially,
    Courtney
