Separate a solid body into two

Dear all,

 

I'm having a bit of trouble separating a solid model I made of an SAE racecar into two sections, Body and Sidepod, Since it is one solid part (so that it can be CNC'd) it doesnt have any specific bodies that I can select using the split tool.

 

The reason I cannot go back to the separate surfaces I made is because the sidepod interects the bodywork where I only wanted the external part, so by making them a solid I could achieve this.

 

I have managed to make a model of just the bodywork by splitting the model and mirroring the side that does not have a sidepod but I am having difficulty separating the sidepod (and its chamfers/fillets) into a separate part.I hope this all makes sense and I apologise if what I am trying to ask does not come across clearly I wasnt entirely sure how to word this.

 

I have attached two files, one of the solid body together with its sidepod and one of the body on it's own I hope this makes more sense to you with the files.

 

Kind regards,

 

Nathan Atkins
