I suspect the so called "trial run" consisted of wrapping two cars, telling the media, interviewing a few passengers and moving forward with wrapping more cars.
If WMATA told the media about the wrapping on Monday, they probably started wrapping the next batch of cars on Tuesday. I suspect it was never really a trial. They had their minds already made up because it saves money according to them and it creates the illusion of more new trains on the rails.
They were already removing all the carpet from the 6k series anyway. Probably figured why not go a step further and give them a 7k Halloween costume at the same time.
