The trunk caused a bit of controversy before it even hit Columbus. Its commonly accepted that Chrysler didnt splatter-paint the trunk compartment, but instead, painted all trunk interiors the body color. But the splatter paint was thereDwight never added it in the 30-plus years hes owned the car, and the paint appeared to have been applied by the factory. So, Pioneer matched the splatter pattern and reapplied it, even though most people said, It shouldnt be there, so dont put it back. Did they make the right decision? Well, the donor car that supplied the new trunk floor and quarters had splatter paint, and weve since spotted two C-Bodies (one in Columbus, the other at Chryslers at Carlisle), that had splatter-painted trunks. That doesnt mean every C-Body had a splatter-painted trunk, but at least four did. The lessons here are to never say never, and if you can document iteven if it goes against what everybody says is correctput the car back together in the way you found it.
