BE/BH Legacy and Outback hoods are steel. Baja hoods are aluminum.
I did primer it after the pic was taken. I plan on putting a small bit of Bondo around the edges of the scoop to smooth it out a bit more. Then I plan o plastidipping the whole car this spring. It'll protect the paint from the gravel really well.
