Anyone know what the hood is made out of?? It seems extremely light for such a big vehicle, and.....when removing snow....well, the process seems almost like removing snow from plastic....is it in fact some sort of composite material??
Well, as I normally do....started the vehicle, let it warm up, then use a "snow rake" like they have at car dealerships to gently pull and push it off.........thing was it seemed like the bottom layer would not release, even after a lengthy engine run.......it also seemed like there was more "flex" in the hood material as opposed to what I have been used to in vehicles of this size. ...but the aluminum would answer the question, and i need to take a look, but it must be very effectively insulated!How did you remove the snow??
Interesting....I believe in using lightweight materials, but not at the risk of structural integrity or the safety of occupants. It will be interesting to see how Ford makes out with the new aluminum body F150.http://www.cadillacforums.com/forum...um-2007/99572-dent-hood-shutting-07-lade.html
