Many Pantones do not convert nicely to process.
Understood. I suspect the only that at is critical is 209. That is used as the accent color throughout the job. The others only used a couple of places to correlate with colors on the company's website and older printed catalog.

I am going to purchase copy of the Bridge book so I'll have a reference to show the client. One of my clients wholesales the entire Pantone line, so I can get what the owner terms a Friends and Family discount. That makes the cost a bit more tolerable.

For whatever it is worth: today I reviewed a proof of the job with the printer. I am not entirely sure of the proofing process, but the job is being run on a six-color Heidelberg, stochastic screening. The company owner said the proof is created by the RIP that preps the job for the press. The screen is visible in the proof. The most critical color, PMS 209 is about as close as one can expect from a CMYK build. I used the numbers from the Pantone conversion book.
