    I Know I've Asked This Before....

    Does Anybody Know How to Transform a Two-Door (ex. Honda Accord Coupe Concept) into a Four-Door (ex. Pontiac G8)? If you can, without getting toocomplicated and provide some examples ( examples opt., but would be extremely helpful), and explain step,s I'd really appreciate it! Also, if you guys know any tutorial that has this stuff, that'd be great also!
    Thanks in advance!

    you need to extend the body, without mis-shaping it too much, maybe just separate the front from the door, make the front door shorter, make the roof higher, and make lines for the read door, or find a donor door (which usually doesnt work)

    unless it is a car ike the Civic, where the wheelbase ofthe coupe is shorter, you keep the wheel positions .. then make the front door shorter, and morph rear doors. The roof is usually less "sloping" in the back of the Sedans than coupes, adding more headroom out back.

    Also the shoulder of coupes is usually more sloping, so if you want to be true to potential production, you should make that less aggressive.

    Finally, if the trunk is nonexisten or compromised by the coupe design , the sedan will likely have a more prominent truck - this will be probably done by different trunk shape, slight elongation of the trunk deck and possibly by repositioning the rear window.

    That is about it .. the hard points - front of greehouse, front quaters, wheel position, etc should remain unchanged. You probably do not even need to touch anything front of th a-pillar.

    good luck ... it is a big project to take on.

    for example:

    2007 Accord coupe:


    2007 Accord Sedan:


    I hope this helps.
