As seen in the pictures, Stellar ship is shining, with stainless steel that looks retro and futuristic in equal parts, and so it will continue, as the company says that the "skin" would get too hot if it finished painting.

SpaceX hopes to make some changes to the orbital version. It will have a thicker outer layer to avoid eventualities and a smoother curvaceous section of the nose. It is expected that this version will be complete by June. [NewAtlas]
