Default This can't be normal

Ok so I finally was able to get my camera to take a picture of my trunk. I noticed this not too too long ago when I was replacing my tail light bulbs and tinting them.

I just wanted to know if this is normal in every bonne car or not at all.

my car has it too.

i assumed it was the result of failed attempts to fix the infamous "water leak"

my 04 SE didnt have it, but the 02 SSEi does.

Mmmm....pookie.

It'* body and seam sealer. Nothing to be worried about. I would worry if you saw stress cracks in the mix though.

I agree, its just seam sealer. Albeit liberally applied but still just seam sealer nonetheless.

I second this because it'* truly liberally pasted all over my 94'* trunk, and it'* painted so well that it hasn't chipped yet. Not as far as I know, and I have no trunk carpeting!

I haven't checked yet on the SLE, but I'm sure it'* probably the same. Probably not as much rust, though.

I had this in my '02 SE and it'* in my '04 GXP. This is quite normal and part of regular production.
