Do you know why some AA A300 are painted all grey and others have the AA bare metal look?

The painted ones are earlier deliveries. Airbus uses paint as corrosion protection because they use a different skin (it isnt Alcad). On the later deliveries, AA persuaded Airbus to deliver them bare.

No more "painted" A300's, they are now all bare metal.
