Turm upgrade painting

When the boats came in for their Turm IV retrofits, was the entire boat repainted or just the new metal work? The boat I'm modelling, U-371 was only in port for 21 days for its refit of the Turm and removal of the 88mm gun. This was in Toulon in Sept, 1943. Seems like a short period of time to service the entire boat.

I'm modelling the second patrol after it was retrofitted so I'm cuious what the paint would have looked like after just a few weeks.
