process to spot - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I'm creating a print job and part of the logo has a gradient in it. The printer is asking that the file have nothing but spot colors in it. However, when I try to alter the gradient from process to spot, it's shaded out and wont allow me to. The color's that I used to create the gradient are both spot, why is it that the gradient wont change? - Richard...

    Default Re: process to spot

    Try making the gradient with two shapes, One belnding from Spot one to White, the other blending from White to Spot 2. Overprint the fill of the topmost object.
