Is this stock?
A search of stripped down D90 bulkheads shows the area pictured is metal. I'm concerned about the grayish area forward of the trans tunnel. It appears to be a hard and thin plastic shell of some sort. Is this stock from the factory?
It may be stuck to the metal like bedliner material.
My concern is if I try to do a footwell welding repair the stuff will melt.
So, I need to figure out how to remove.
