…In this video I want to show you how…to mirror this component across the center line.…And in chapter two, let's open up file 07, mirror.…At the very top, this is the body symmetry file that we're…going to achieve at the end of the next series of videos.…If we go down one to body chamfor, let's mirror this part across the center line.…I noticed I'm missing the edge loops.…So we could quickly add those back in.…Insert edge loop tool.…Reset.…Let's put one here, one here and one right at the very end like that.…Q to quite the command.…
