Default Any idea what this is?

Found this while cleaning the crap out of the inner front fender. Appears to be a cover of some sort. There's a part number molded in, but I can't quite read it.

Almost looks like a blob of machinists wax that was covering something before it was installed into the car and it fell into the car instead of being tossed out.

My friend found a fuel injector in his fender when we rolled them last week.

Can't find it right now I'll try and get a pic. Looked like it had been there for 10 years.
