Silly question perhaps: The part in the front (below the hood, the part with the logo on) , is that made of plastic or metal?

Have you tried looking at it? Tapping it with a fingernail? Holding a magnet to it?
Aja. Tapping made different sound, and was why I wondered. But good idea to test with magnet, it did not work. So then I suppose it can be concluded it's not metal.

Thank you very much for the reply and help :):eek:

Well, it's not magnetic :lol:

Could still be aluminium, or certain grades of stainless - but that's very unlikely so I'd be leaning toward plated plastic.

Tbh, I'm not entirely sure which bit you're on about anyway ;)

The part the arrow point at here:



It has the same color as the metal parts. There is a couple of stone chips( is that the correct english word?) on this part. But if it's plastic there is no danger of rust under them.
That is why I was interested to be sure.

If it was metal, it'd probably be steel and a magnet would stick.

Even if it did turn out to be aluminium (very unlikely anyway) then it wouldn't rust, so probably safe to ignore.
