What is installed is Vitreous Enamel, like your old camping mug, cannot be altered once it's made, very susceptible to damage in transit and the damage cannot be repaired, a whole panel needs to be replaced, any chips will rust. But try telling an architect. They had too put them in as there were no replacements and it had to be closed up to commence internal works.

    Everything else 100%
