Does anybody recognise this cover/padding

Hey guys, just rummaged through some parts that were left over from my car's rebuild and found this cover that none of us seem to be able to recognise where it came from. Any ideas?

That's what came up when I googled the part number, doesn't really look the same as the diagram though.

Pretty sure it belongs in the engine bay.

Yeah it looks that way, I'll post a photo of where we suspected it to go but doesn't fit too good.

To the right of the engine. Seems like something should be in there but this particular padding doesn't fit perfectly

...and I'm thinking that I don't have padded insulation in the engine bay, but do on the interior.

There is a firewall (sort of...a hard plastic wall) that fits in front of the left rear part of engine bay...on intake side...through which the hose from upper intake boot passes before brake booster...don't think that's the missing part you have in photo though.

Let's see how realoem treats me...brb!

#12...over rear wheel housing.

I'm feeling pretty good about this random guess...you're welcome!

Thanks, DMAX! Quick question, where do you have the time for all this, all the time?

Also, still loving those green walls

It's not as much that I have the time...I just waste it this way...too much!

When you open the trunk, I think you'll find the contour you're after pretty soon.

I get more comments on my green wall tires. Many here think I was just joking about it, but all those who've met me and my car can attest to the tires really being green. While everyone else here looks for unique in the same places, I'm out there mavericking the future world of modding. It's kind of lonely out here by myself though...waiting to see more green walls around!
