Ok i have another question.. As of now I am making the two seperate objects for the car i am modeling. Once I have completed them and got them both where I want them, how would I go about merging the two objects and making them both one whole car body???.
it depends on the way you model. if you model in nurbs it might not always work to make them one object - but you could stitch them to be seamlessly connected. for polyons or subd - combining and merging the touching verts helps.
but you had to give out a bit more information, and we could help you better ...
