Would the trunk be painted before or after the fuel tank was installed? Would the filler neck sleve have splatter paint?

Not sure who painted the splatter paint in the trunk, GM or Fisher body. GM installed the gas tank, so if Fisher painted the trunk then there would not be splatter paint on the filler neck.
I know Fisher installed the rear wiring and the cocktail shakers (on convertibles) and they have splatter paint on them. My guess is that Fisher did spray the splatter paint in the trunk in their assembly line, but I'm guessing.

The filler neck cover had splatter paint over it. Also, the trunk was painted before the splatter paint was layed over the top. My car (67) had the wiring splatter painted also, along with the plastic wiring cover.

"John Z" has written an excellent article outlining the Camaro Final Assembly Processes and Sequences.
You can find a link in the 'Body Shop' forum;
To quote from the Fisher section:
'The last process for a non-stripe car was the blackout booth, where the firewall was blacked-out, the trunk was sprayed with spatter paint, and sound-deadening undercoat material was sprayed in the rear wheelhouses. The rear "cocktail shakers" on convertibles were suspended in the trunk for spatter painting, but weren't bolted in place until later in the Trim Shop, after the taillights and marker lights were installed. '
Hope this helps;

Any rear wiring or lamp housings with spatter paint on them indicates that the trunk spatter paint has been touched-up or re-painted; ALL rear wiring and lamps were installed in the Fisher Body Trim Shop, AFTER the Paint Shop.
