Default Interesting Trunk find and Question

Thought I would clean out my trunk and maybe check for water leaks when I found some intresting things. One it looked like some leakproofing had allready been done and two i found a cover that i'm not sure what it goes to.

Here is the cover in question:




Here are some pics of what looks like some waterproofing....

I ASSumed it was for the fuel fiter myself, cool that it'* not, will take lots of work to get to that for me.

Yes it looks like little bit of waterproofing there, weird that it'* the bottom, mines on the top weld seams. Very interesting.

I take it you saw my trunk and decided to look for leaks, not a bad idea at all. Look what you found.

Yea, I was cleaning the trunk out from the GTA trip and ghtought I would check it while it was empty. Your fuel filter is rear driver side just forward of the rear tire on the underside.
