I wasn't thinking that they really sat around for days intensionally, just that 
if the bodies were made and painted in batches then perhaps they would be 
"parked" somewhere while pans came down the line and claimed them. 

If this were so, then it is also quite possible that there would be a "parking 
lot" of (for example) red notch bodies which might have been populated by one 
or more such paint batches, and then stacked in there randomly. There would be 
no reason for an exact first in/first out selection. Plus a blue body that had 
just been painted might wait in the blue lot 1 day, while a red one at the back 
of the red lot (because it was actually the FIRST one done in its batch) might 
wait a week to be used.
