Which parts are steel / aluminum ??

Are the door tops on the half doors steel or aluminum??

How about the "tub"?

How about the supporting "channel", see pic??



I know the tub capping is steel.

Fenders and hood are all aluminum I believe while the frame of the hood is steel.

Hey Joe, a simple magnet will tell you all you need to know.

Thought of that but didn't have one then I went to Menard's and go one but either it's too weak or it won't penetrate the paint/line x, or it's aluminum.

In any case I don't trust it so I wanted to ask and see if anyone knew.

Thanks for the input though.

Anyone know??

On this planet at least, a magnet is one thing you can always trust.
