Competition Mustangs: Respraying existing bodies

Employees at Fender sometimes resprayed a new color over an existing finished body.  The reasons for Fender doing this aren't very clear but we do know that the occurrences are rare.

Here is an example of Competition Red over Competition Blue.  Look closely at the finish 2nd and 3rd pictures that reveal the blue undercoat in the areas of wear.

Note looking at the last picture it doesn't appear that the headstock had been painted blue first.

Here is an example of Competition Orange over Competition Blue.
