It is the anti-corrosion paint applied to the wings.

Hi Larry...no, it is the light gray-colored "center portion" of the wing between the forward and aft wing spars, from the root/wing-to-fuselage join out to the near-tip...only the leading edges, wing tip and trailing edge control surfaces are bare metal, usually also the spoilers/speed brakes. Although I guess this is what you mean by the "top of the wing".

This is a bit of a generalization, but is fairly constant.

Hope this clears your confusion. I'm sure there are plenty of pictures on Airliners.net you might find that would show you better than I have described.

Cheers!
