Coating scratched pistons

Hey guys, I found a pretty damn good deal on some weisco pistons (87mm) for a turbo project. The downside, they are scratched (minor) from the previous guy running them in a stock bore. The guy selling them said that they could be recoated for 75$. I've never heard of pistons being recoated before (but i also dont much about pistons in general) and usually as soon as it's scratched it's garbage.

my question is, if a machine shop were to "recoat" them, would they still be reliable/usable ?

Is this process actually worth doing or am I going to get screwed paying for parts I can't use anyways ?

I wouldn't risk it. Cutting corners when building a motor is NOT a good idea!!!
