Is this just a coat of paint or are they going to sandblast/whatever the metal and repair everything? thanks!The carbodies are getting much-needed work to repair the dings and rust spots that the paint only covers up. On the exterior they'll look like brand new cars. I don't know if the innards are getting much work. Except for the occasional door/reboot problem they seem to be running just spiffy after 20 years so probably won't be much except for replacing worn parts.
I'd really like to see those awful, abbreviated, unreadable LCD screens replaced by the bright bus-type LED's while they're at it. I know they were just installed, but they were purchased in '98 in anticipation of the Type 8's being available much sooner...and that was before LED technology got as good as it is now.
