    I thought hardtops were made of metal unless I unknowingly have a fiberglass top. I was told I have the stock hardtop and stock front fenders from the previous owner. I took a magnet tonight and checked around, and my fenders are steel, and the rim around the hardtop is steel, but the top of the hardtop did not attract the magnet at all. Is this a stock hartop?
