Ok, the solder mask (step 6) issue was sorted, and that step was completed today. The lead-free solder coating (step 7) will be done Friday morning. The company that does the solder coating runs lead-free solder 1/2 the time, and Thursday is a lead-type solder day. The panels should be delivered to get the silkscreen legend applied (step 8) also on Friday.

I spent an hour at the V-Score shop today (step 9), going over the CAD data to be sure there won't be any issues. CNC scoring is one of the simpler steps, but it's the last remaining automated process.

I enjoyed chatting with the guy for a good while after, seems he's a bit of a kindred spirit. Not that that matters, but since I'll probably be making the boards this way for the future products (no sense letting this re-learning curve go to waste) it will pay to have a friend in the business.
