Does anyone know what this is on my JP apron? Here are the things that I know about it:

1. It is square
2. It is filled with some kind of gooey/goopy material (almost like melted plastic)
3. Looking at pictures on IPDB, there doesn't appear to be anything missing here (and seems to be factory?)
4. There is nothing on the underside of the apron in this area
5. It is only partially covered by the lockdown bar
6. It serves no purpose as far as I can tell, other than to get crap all over your hands/fingers

Rubber pad ( decrepit ) to rest the playfield against the backbox ?

Melted crap usually doesn't. Got chemicals on it, or breaking down with age.

Strange that it is now a liquid goo and not some brittle solid (if old and dried out). I am not sure that I want to touch it anymore.

You've probably had your hands in worse crap by now. Clean it, scrape it, get it off. Before it attacks the plastic underneath.

Mine has this too. Never knew what it was for but it is annoying

Not yet, but I want to be in the I-Touched-That-Icky-Stuff-On-DE-Aprons Club, so I probably will when I get home.

I just checked mine. It's a little pad missing. My original theory was that it kept the glass from rubbing/getting scratched by the apron, but it's not quite that tall. I think you're pad is gone and you're just left with the adhesive residue.

You can see it in my video @ about :43
