What are car bodies made from?
Most auto bodies are made of sheet metal (steel) and aluminum in varying mixes. More and more parts are being made of carbon fiber (for it's low weight) although the expense of carbon fiber has, to date, kept the production to a minimum. Some vehicles such as the Corvette are made of fiberglass.
I think they are used for crash saftey.
In modern cars and other vehicles, the frame is a highly
engineered crash-absorption component that can help to protect you
and your family in a collision by dispersing impact forces more
predictably. Every year, hundreds of thousands of used vehicles
with hidden frame damage to that very component are bought and
sold, usually for one of two reasons:
1. Typical visual frame inspection procedures for new or pre owned vehicles used by even the most reputable car dealers can actually fail to detect hidden auto frame damage from a common collision.
2. Unscrupulous individuals are "passing off" a salvaged car that has been totalled and refurbished, but not repaired correctly or to vehicle safety specifications.
How Frames React In Collisions
Safety engineering has made incredible leaps in the past few decades of automotive design. Frame structure and manufacturing has played a significant role in many of these automotive advances.
Just as the highly technical design of an Indy race car keeps its driver alive in an otherwise horrendous crash, the design and integrity of a frame dictates how a passenger car or truck "behaves" in a collision. Crumple zones are precisely engineered to absorb impact and protect you and your family. Air bag deployment is also affected by frame design.
For every vehicle, the manufacturer has developed the ideal behavior characteristics of the frame seen in automobile crash tests. Auto frame damage can compromise your vehicle safety even in a minor rear-end collision by changing your car's alignment, crumple zones or air bag deployment.
Impact Damage When your car is in a collision, its frame can become damaged in two ways. First, the accident can result in direct damage to the frame, which appears at the location of impact. For instance, as you might expect in a rear-end collision, the rearmost sections of your vehicle frame may be damaged.
If youre asking why is aluminum used in car bodies the answer would be because its lighter than steel but still is rigid and strong enough to be used in the frame. Aluminum is not made specifically for car bodies/frames rather that is just one application for it.
car bodies are made of steel alloy that contains iron and carbon.
by casteing together of iron and steel
so they don`t get damaged as easily
It depends on the car, but for most cars the frame and body is made of steel and is therefore ferrous. However, some newer hybrid car bodies are made of aluminum or plastic and therefore not ferrous.
Low-carbon steel because it has to be flexible so you can mould it into body shapes.
You are an idiot. It would be too expensive and hard to make. Why aren't all cars made out of carbon fiber then?
The bodies of most cars in 1920 were made of Tin or Steel. The Ford Model T was known as the Tin Lizzie for this reason.
Cars are made from many materials. Bodies can be made of metal, plastics, aluminum or even carbon fibers. Wheels and internal parts have many materials as well.
I can think of two reasons: lightweight (better gas mileage, etc.) and no rust
By normal car bodies, i am guessing you mean real car bodies. There is Test Drive and Midnight Club.
car bodies, tractor trailers, but mostly it is used to make new cans - so keep recycling! : )
Mild Steel is a Ferrous Metal used for making Car and Fridge Bodies.
Most cars have some aluminum in the structure, but for the most part, car bodies are sheet steel. The 1980s DeLorean was constructed from aluminum.
The sheet metal used to make car bodies is low carbon steel. High carbon steel is too brittle for an application like this. The low carbon steel is easy to work, has good strength, and doesn't end up brittle when it comes out of the press. Additionally, when low carbon steel car bodies get into an accident, the low carbon steels bends, folds and deforms more than high carbon steel (which would break), and this… Read More
Holden started business in Australia in 1856. The company made saddlery, and moved into car bodies when car manufactures built engine and chassis only. General Motors bought Holden in 1931. Holden built its' first complete car in Australia in 1948.

dolphins's bodies are made to serve a porpoise
metal and plastic and aliminium ^ wrong! aluminium - for car bodies + wheel hubs. iron/steel - for car bodies. copper - for electrical wires. lead - for lead-acid batteries. plastic - for dials, dashboards + bumpers. pvc - for metal wirings. glass + plastic - for windscreens. fibre - for seats. hope i helped + gave you the correct answers :) Where do these raw materials come from? u need to add were the… Read More
Scrap Metal prices for car bodies is around $250 per ton. In addition, the catalytic converters and rims are also worth money.
About 60% - 80% of our bodies is made up of water!
This has not happened yet.
There lies friction between two bodies when either both or either one moving. The friction between car tyre and mud surface is not sufficient to move the car forward which made the tyre spin without movement of car. There is a coefficient of friction between every substance.this is low in between car tyre and mud.
Sand blasting works.
It is cheaper and easier to manufacture than aluminum, fiberglass, carbon fiber or stainless steel bodies.
Strength, cheapness and the ability to be easily formed or "moulded". However, increasingly, a lot of car bodies incorporate fibre glass, plastics, carbon fiber and other composite materials.
The bodies, if that's what you mean, are made of fiberglass.
Fiberglass has been used for decades. The original 1953 Chevrolet Corvette body was made of fiberglass. The Glasspar G2 built in 1949 was made of fiberglass but they just made bodies not a complete car. The Kaiser-Darrin 161 built in 1954 was also fiberglass.
you have to pay for it!
What are some cool bodies I can put on a 2006 Toyota corolla that I wrecked I don't want corolla bodies but custom bodies that would fit on the frame of my car?
The car is a unibody design, so there is no frame. If the body is wrecked badly, you may have to trash or part out the car. If it isn't wrecked too bad, you might be able to put a body kit on it. Most of these are universal and will require trimming, etc to fit your car. Other than that, it will cost more than what the car was new to do too much… Read More

Small spherical bodies made up of lymphatic tissue are called lymph nodes.
He made several air cars. He used existing bodies for most of them. One of them had a plastic body with interchangeable roofs so it could look like a sports car or whatever. Lots of photos and newspaper articles are available.

He is not made of chakra. It is just that he emits chakra to control his 6 paths or bodies. The bodies then receive the chakra through chakra recievers.
