hey i had the same problem at scholl 2 dy an the sloution is really easy

go polygons -> tool options -> keep faces together (make sure it is ticked)

this fixes it an allows u to extact those faces an keep them as an object rather than havin to merge all those verts

i know its a bit late but in that tut he does a lot of it
Now at SMU doing BSc 3D Computer Animation so its hard to get on here

Default Had same problem

I had the exact same problem, it seems to be something to do with the way the faces are extruded, because when i did the extract i got lots of individual pieces of the bumper, what i had to do was "merge vertices" on the bumper, then do the extract, worked fine. PS. the keep faces together option didn't solve it.
