How to Create Your Own Body Kit on the Computer

Body kits incorporate a certain sense of flair to your car. Comprised of fibreglass fenders, spoilers and carbon fibre bonnets, body kits add various touches to your vehicle's boot or rear bumpers. Because some folks believe they may increase a car's aerodynamics, body kits are often utilised by race car drivers. Though body kits are often created and installed by professionals, it is possible to create your own body kit with a computer with 3D software.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Measure the area on your car on which you plan to put the body kit. For instance, if you desire to insert bumpers that you personalise in place of your stock bumpers, write down these measurements so that your personalised bumper fits in the proper manner.

  2. 2

    Create a picture of how you plan the body kit to appear with the use of 3D computer software such as Blender, Daz or Autodesk (see Resources). Use downloadable computer images of vehicles that have parts you want to place on your body kit.

  3. 3

    View the image of your vehicle via your 3D software. Click your 3D editor to choose the portion of the body kit you want to change. Then, click "Edit" and "Copy." Click on the image of your vehicle and navigate to the word "Edit" and "Paste as new selection."
