I'd guess it's bonded to earth somehow, intention being to suppress EMF radiation. GRP bodied cars employ methods of the sort not typically needed in steel bodied cars.

Not all Aluminium adhesive tape is electrically conductive through the adhesive, some are some aren't. Unless it says on the label you need to check it's conductive by sticking 2 bits together and checking they conduct across the join. It's really useful stuff to have in the toolbox though, loads of unexpected uses when it's to hand.
