Default Gap between bumper and wheel well?




First post here! I am not an automotive person. I inherited this vehicle without much information and hope to get it in good running order! I noticed a large gap between the rear bumper and wheel well. Any reason for this? There appears to be no rust or rough marks to indicate it was cut. Is it anything I should be worried about? There was a rubberized mat placed in the trunk to cover it, so the previous owner must have been aware of it.

Thanks!

That car has been hit. There should be no gap between the metal inner fender and the metal outer fender.

Yeah, that has to be welded or some type of industrial strong seam seal has to be used to close that. It should be strong and solid

Upon further inspection, it appears it was deliberately modified to transform it into a wide body, but never worked on past these initial cuts. I'll have it patched up and post the results. Thank you for the responses!
