Good god, be core full with that.

Did you find any references to sputtering the coating.  I would think this would give you a more even and more adhesive coating.  Some chemical engineering labs at universities do that and would probably coat it for free.  I know Dr. Viljoen at Nebraska-Lincoln has a setup for that.  He usually sputters metal but I think a Teflon target would work the same.
