When you see a car with a custom body modification, it’s not a new car but an upgrade
The word “body modification” was first used in the 1960s to describe a vehicle with a “new body”.
But now, with the advent of the internet, the word is being used to describe almost anything.
The term “bodymodification” is also used to refer to any new car, even if it’s an entirely different body from the one it’s replacing.
Here’s a list of the top body modifications, as well as some of the names associated with them.
New Body: “New body” is a generic term for a new or enhanced body, which can also include the bodywork, seats and windows.
It also refers to the cosmetic treatment of the car, such as paint, body kit and other parts.
The word is also applied to a wide range of car parts, including body mirrors, rear window covers and side mirrors.
Body Modification: “Body modification” is the modification of a vehicle’s exterior or interior by adding, altering or replacing parts.
Some body modifications can include body panels, bumpers, side skirts, headlights and exhaust pipes.
Custom Body: These are modifications of a car’s exterior by modifying parts, like the suspension, brakes and fuel injection systems, without adding any other parts to the car.
They can include a custom hood, roof, rear spoiler and grille, and can also have a custom engine bay or engine block.
Body Kit: A body kit is an assembly of parts, such the engine, transmission and transmission fluid, that adds an element of individuality to a vehicle.
These kits can include suspension, doors, seats, interior trim and a variety of other parts that can be easily swapped in and out.
Body Parts: These can include parts for a vehicle, such a transmission, brakes, fuel injection and cooling systems.
Some parts may be interchangeable with the rest of the vehicle, while others are more difficult to swap.
Body Kits: Some body kits can also be used to enhance a vehicle to make it look new.
The most common body kits include a headlight, a hood, grille and window sticker.
Body Transmogrification: Transmuting a car to add more character and functionality to its interior is a popular form of body modification.
Transmigration includes the replacement of the interior or exterior parts of a non-standard body.
The terms transmutation and body modification are often used interchangeably, but are not synonymous.
Transmsigration can be used when the car has a “body” or a “headlight” and is intended to look different, like a Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic.
The “body-transmogrifying” modifications are usually done to make the vehicle look more modern or modernized, like an Audi A3 or Porsche Boxster S. The body modification can also involve adding a roof or other exterior elements.
Custom Parts: Some car companies sell body parts to make them look as though they are from their own brand.
Others, like BMW, sell custom body parts made by others to make a car look different.
Body Scratchers: Body scratchers are a popular term for body modifications that involve the removal of or the addition of body parts.
Body scrats are often done by removing the car’s front or rear bumper, a small portion of the windshield or a roof.
They also remove the wheel well, and sometimes the steering wheel.
Custom Tailgate: Some companies offer custom tailgates, where a customer can make their own parts for their car.
This is done by adding a small piece of plastic to the rear bumper and front bumper.
The customer then removes the front bumper and a piece of the back bumper.
A large piece of metal is then attached to the front of the tailgate, while the small piece is attached to a small section of the side mirror.
Body-Scratchers and Body Modifications: These two terms are used interchangeately, but do not necessarily mean the same thing.
Body modifications are the creation of an original body part, and the body parts that are added are usually modifications of the original body.
Body modification refers to a new body that is not part of the factory’s factory-made body, like some sports cars, trucks or even a sport-utility vehicle.
Body mods are used to create new details and body characteristics in a car.
For example, a new paint job, a custom bumper, wheels or brakes may all be body modifications.
Some car modifications are used by a manufacturer to create a unique look.
Others are used in a factory to help the manufacturer build a unique product.
A company may be selling body modification parts or body parts for its own cars, or it may be a seller of body modifications parts.
