They make them at Renton as you say (although at that point they are not always completely finished), then they are flown over to Boeing Field (where they used to be made years ago) in their zinc coating. They are then painted, apart from the tail fin and rudder and (sometimes) winglets (if fitted) which are already painted before they are put onto the airframe at Renton because the paint adds to their weight, so they have to be balanced when they are fitted. The average paint job on a 737 adds roughly 300lbs extra weight in total although that actually depends to some extent on how fancy the paint job is because masked paint patterns on intricate liveries are oversprayed over a base coat, so simple liveries will weigh quite a lot less.After they have been painted and that paint has dried and hardened, they may also then be flown either back to Wichita (where the fuselages originally come from by train after having been made there), or over to Georgetown, depending on what needs doing to them for the final customer. At Wichita they fit out military variants (C40, MMA etc) with any fancy Air Force or Navy bits and pieces they need, whereas at Georgetown they fit stuff such as extra fuel tanks on the BBJ variants and satellite communications equipment. This is because these things are supplemental type fittings that require different certification.An interesting thing to note, is that several 737 fuselages have had to have bullet holes in them patched up after arriving at Renton from Wichita, because people take potshots at them as they travel through the remote countryside on the trains.Al

honestly some people are really stupid. Do these idiots know that Boeing can smash them? It makes me sick and not just at the plane but shooting animals??? Hillbillies make me furious. The trains should really have side walls or something
