Thats an interesting question for me too.My car also had this thin film
of rubber between inner and outer fender on the front, no where else, but I
haven't given it much thought because I'm a long way from putting the
fenders back on. WAs yours like a gasket or like someone put it on with a
caulking gun then bolted the fender togther.I too would like to know what
it was for and is it supposed to be there. I wa tch the list pretty
closely, maybe someone will reply to the list but if they don't could you
let me know what you find out.
