Set up
I know he says its solo but actually it is semi solo. your friend does not need to know you are using him
Need a bunker to spawn in

Own the arena with bennys mechanic

Car that has mods in B1 level

Car that will get the mods in B1 level

Friend in a different INVITE Only session. He does not need to know you are using him. May work of friend is I n different target mode. Will need to test
  1. Set spawn location to bunker and go to new session so you spawn in bunker
    Travel to Arena
    Before you walk in to arena, call simeon and request a job
    Walk into Level B1
    Get in car that has MODS already on it
    Pull up phone and hover over Simeon job
    Press and Hold Pause button, right after you release it, press A to accept simeon job
    You should hear phone open and also see the pause menu
    Back out of pause menu and spam Right on d pad.
    You should spawn into mod space and have the ability to exit car. Sometimes you will spawn into the space where the car was with the car in the mod shop space. If so, just walk to the mod space
    Get back into the car that has mods and hit right dpad so you see mod menu

    With mod menu up, join your friend in an invite only session. Accept both alerts.
    You will come back down into arena with the ability to get out of the car
    Get out of car and go get in the plain car. Get in this car and hit right dpad. Car will flip around into the mod area
    With mod menu up, join your friend again, accepting all alerts
    You will come back down. Get out of car
    Get inside car that has mods and do the simeon job steps again (step 6 -9)
    You will see your self on foot near the two cars
    Get inside the plain car, you should have option to hit LEFT d pad to return to storage, If not, do step 16 again
    Hit left dpad and join friend again. Accept first alert and then spam left d pad
    You will come back down with mods on the car.
    Save the car by changing something.

I did this a couple of hours ago, if the other person is in free roam, all the times, it takes me into a new session (says joining a new GTA online session).
Had to be in invite only sitting in titan of a job lobby

Try it with a friend in different target mode. That might work also
 
I dont know that using community people to join is a good idea. U dont know what type of session they are in

I’m having trouble on the set where I have to let go of the pause menu button and accept Simons job. I keep getting the option to modify my vehicle. Any advice anyone?

Its all timing. There needs to be a slight delay from letting go of pause and hitting a. Very slight.

Happened to me, see post above. Your friend needs to be in, for example, invite only session in a Titan of a job lobby, waiting there until you finish, they will get kicked for idling too.

Hmm. Maybe u are doing something wrong? Kingalex doesnt say anything about your friend needing to be in a job.
 
U know what? Im pretty sure u need to start in an invite only session also. Try that.

I was in invite only, my friend was in invite only too (free roam), and every time ended in a new public session. Even tried just to get the alert, boom, public session. Thanks anyways, I had one car to make that I forgot last time and I did it.
Once my friend was in Titan of a Job lobby, got it to work first try. I don't know why, but the game was putting me in a new public session every time if my friend was in invite only in free roam.

Be in invite only session with friend. Let him start activity with friends in session.
Join him through party to get cars glitches out.

I appreciate your reply, but I'm done, I only wanted to make one car that I missed with first glitches. I made it, almost 4 hours ago.
I posted what happened to me just for the purpose of helping other people if they have the same issue as I did.

I'm having same problem on PS4. Having a friend in a private session isn't enough. If they're not in activity or job it tries to take you to their lobby, gives private notification, then boots you to new public session.

Well. That stinks. By "private " i assume you mean invite only?
 
Are u joining your friend while u have the mod menu open?
