I have a model of a vehicle that contains a ton of objects. seats, seat belts, etc down to individual screws and such. All I want is the "skin" really but not sure how to do it. Is there a way to quick select all visible objects ignoring what i cannot see?

Thank you for your time/help!

    $\begingroup$ you could select everything visible with the lasso tool (ctrl), then inverse the selection with ctrl i, then delete. $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jan 22 at 19:03
  • $\begingroup$ The lasso tool for me seems to select everything inside and out. So the inverse turns out to be nothing. $\endgroup$ – Carlos Mendieta Jan 22 at 19:39

    $\begingroup$ you don't give enough precision, are you in 2.8? in Edit mode? if you're in Edit mode, then enable the Limit Selection to Visible option $\endgroup$ – moonboots Jan 22 at 19:52

Select everything visible with the lasso tool ( ctrl ), then inverse the selection with ctrl i, then X to delete.
