Taxied by the DL maintenance hanger on a flight to MCI on Friday and noticed a HA 763 sitting there. Any ideas why?

It's in for a paint job. We've been doing them for a while now.

Yeah I've seen them go into the paint bay and come out looking, from afar, the same to me. Is it just a refresher paint job? When the first one went in a while back ago I was hoping it was getting some cool new livery or some special marking put on it. But same paint job afterwards...
