This is entirely true. The model was repainted, save for the top of the saucer, prior to its first public exhibition at NASM.
Nope, that's an assumption (> post # 100). Doug Drexler got exclusive access to the Smithsonian in early 1977 and published job descriptions for restoration according to which no major paint job was involved.

Just because the saucer top side was repainted after the original pilots (possibly different color than the rest of the model) is definitely not a base to arrive at the odd conclusion that it was the engineering hull that got a paint job "prior to its first public exhibition at NASM"...
