  • What's my S80m hood made from?

    I was trying to retrieve a dropped screw the other day and got my little claw grabber and magnetic wand to help. When I finished I put them on the hood of my S80 while I unlocked my tool closet. (An advantage of having a garage built in the '60's to hold Sedan DeVilles sized cars is a lot of room. A later owner put in wall to wall "closets", one with a big ole lock)
    When I reached to pick them up I realized that the magnet had no attraction to the hood. I tried other parts pf the car and all was as expected, it 'stuck'. But on the hood, nothing.
    It it aluminum?
