alternate bodywork for 1st gen

I called ZG direct.  They say "3-4 weeks out" but they won't commit to the date without an order, and won't provide a commitment date on order acceptance either.  I suspect ZG is in the process of going out of business, which is what concerns me about the 1st gen SharkSkinz requiring them.

Since the ZG screens will clearly be 3-4 weeks out until after the season is over, its seems I have no choice but to swap the bodywork for something that uses a screen I can get from multiple sources.
