The original tire cover is fiber board, and has a rectangular sticker printed with your car's options at the lower left corner (nearest the driver side tail light)

It is likely your SC2 suffered from a trunk leak, which cause the fiberboard piece to become soggy, moldy, and collapse (plus rust out the spare tire/well). A previous owner probably fixed the leak and replaced the fiberboard piece with plywood.

If you still have water entering the pockets in front of the tail lights, under the carpet/cover:

not sure what a painter is charging, but the rust spot on my white SC2, I dealt with by buying a rust-free white hood off a junkyard car, think it was around $50. Just held on by 4 bolts total
