I'd say sealant or sound proofing, or perhaps they got bored when making it and decided to make it look like a paint by numbers lol.

It's found in most cars, if u have a rear end shunt this stuff is used as a guide to the amount of damage. If its cracked then technically it's a write off.

Oh that's interesting to know. :).

Something as basic and pretty useless as tape, used for something so important :-p
