    $\begingroup$ perhaps not clear enough, do you mean unclick the Clipping option in the modifier? Or apply your mirror then separate with P > Selection? $\endgroup$ – moonboots Sep 11 '18 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ I have the mirror function on, I would like to seperate it and have the mirror be two parts so I can edit one side of it only. Not both sides. $\endgroup$ – Car00071 Sep 11 '18 at 18:49

Duplicate your object with Shift+D and apply interactive mirror, or Ctrl+M, to the duplicate.

  • $\begingroup$ Pretty much what Mirror modifier does. Note to apply scale and recalculate normals for the mirrorred part with this way as under the hood Interactive Mirror inverts scale. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Sep 11 '18 at 21:37
