Why would they spend the money on giving them a quick paint, when over the next couple of years they are all going through Preston and getting a major overhaul.
Anything that looks too ratty they will just push up the queue for overhaul. A few B2s have already been stripped down to the frame, re-skinned and overhauled and are now back in traffic.

Presumably, they will work through the others over time - although given the age of Z3s they may only get a light touch up, I can't see them bothering to strip a Z3 down to the frame and re-skinning it like has been done to a couple of the B2s.

Some of Transdev's buses are starting to show traces of Ventura blue on them, it isn't just Yarra Trams. That said, Z3 155 used to have one of the worst appearances, still being in grey long after the other trams had been repainted at least twice (this tram happened to be on 7 News last night, don't know if it was a stock photo or not). The smaller trams could do with modernising internally as well (especially the A classes and the former M>Tram Z3s) but I don't see it happening when they have ten years left at most.
