I will say. They are not painted,
The 5 or so I have removed from 5-6 Chevys over the years were just a surface rust of what looked like galvanized steel on the bottom.
But I did notice a difference in the amount of a black tar type coating varied on each of them, some not so heavy and some that covered the sides of the tanks.
I am not aware of "concourse" type rules for 5-6-7 chevies but if it was me I would paint the tank with a galvanized looking paint?
Paint the top of the tank with a spray tar type material and over lap 3 of the sides but not the fill tube side.
But like I said I'm not a concourse fanatic, mines powered coated black with stainless straps.
