The image above shows the ‘clay’ model. This is part of the development process of the body styling. A clay model is made and moulds are taken off this. From this mould we make a thick, fibre glass body, which is then cut and modelled for the ‘B’ surfaces. The ‘B’ surfaces are the internal shapes and opening returns. After this process production moulds are taken off these shapes to produce the final moulds from which the finised body panels are made.
