This method works after 1/7/20 patch.
Requirements:
  • Spawn in Bunker
  • Rat Truck in Arena Mod Shop garage
  • Car that is receiving mods in Mod Shop Garage level
  • Car that is donating mods in Mod Shop Garage level

Steps
  1. Get in the rat Truck and press right d pad to go into mod shop
  2. Exit truck and get back in
  3. Quickly press right d pad, then gas then left d pad. Timing is crusial on this step. For me the three presses are almost simultaneous but order must be Right, Gas ,left.
  4. If you hit it, you will see the name of the Rat Truck (Bravado Rat Truck) in large letters on bottom right of screen and the truck will drive back into the mod shop.
  5. Get out of truck and back in. Check to see that you only have right d pad option on the top left instead of the normal two options (Right D pad to modify and Left to return to storage). If you only right d pad option, you are good to go.
  6. Get our of truck and walk to garage area and get into the car that will RECEIVE the mods. Hit right d pad to modify.
  7. Get out of this car and get back into Rat truck. Hit left on d pad to return to storage, You are now done with this vehicle.
  8. Get in car that will donate mods. Hit right on d pad to modify.
  9. once both cars are in mod shop get back into the car that will receive mods. While sitting in it, hold the pause button and as you release it quickly spam left on d pad.
  10. if you hit it, you will see a cut scene and your character will get out of the car. He will walk endlessley toward a wall. Go iinto first person and press both sticks in to activate n emote. Exit first person and you will be able to walk around.
  11. Go to the garage and the car that was to receive mods will be in a parking space with the mods on it. Take inito mod shop and change anything to save.
NOTE:
  • You only have to do the rat truck step once as long as y ou always have at least one car in the mod shop. To do another set of cars, just switch the cars but make sure you always have at least one car in shop.

Will it work? Most likely. Will it save? Probably not. This is the woes of the PC version.

Was about to reply that this method worked a while back, but I see step 10 is different since they patched the other method of calling the Gerald job?

I’ve had my Xbox in rest mode, hopefully I can do the other method to finish up a few more cars.

i don't see where there is a difference in glitching out the workshop using either the faggio knock over method or the rat truck method, the only thing I'm now having issues with since this morning is getting the pause release and left d-pad to work correctly. last night i was using the faggio method to glitch out the mod shop and your 'hold pause release pause left d-pad' method to transfer the mods to the cars, it was working flawlessly. today i either can't get the timing right at all, or they've patched it with todays vehicle drop.



edit, going to re-spawn at bunker and try again. i did join a job earlier to spawn a new rat truck and save it in my garage. that made me spawn at a random area on the map so i may just have messed up my steps.



re-spawning at bunker fixed it for me.

Trying to merge with zhaba, worked one time when zhaba was released (used car to rc glitch) but now I am hitting endless black loading screen after doing option left d pad.

EDIT: Join friend different targeting mode, accept 1st alert, decline 2nd alert took me out of black screen and the merge completed.
NOTE: I used Knuckleduster livery from APC that my friend brought over from some modding or spmp a long time ago. I merged it onto an Insurgent pickup custom. Then I merged knuckleduster livery from APC to Zhaba.
The knuckleduster came out as Yellow and Blue Camo on the Zhaba. <-- This may be useful.

Ok so I am assuming aim setting isn't an issue and neither is session type. I used the Faggio method to get the two cars together in the mod shop. I hit the glitch with perfect timing, having everything said to happen, happen. Only to find the vehicle parked in the storage area hadn't had it's anything merged. Would there be some light someone could shed on me please and thank you.

*So I managed directly after this post to land it successfully. I just went back into the mod shop, entered the giving car and changed something. Then entered the reciever car and it worked! Thank you for the awesome information here!

I was going to say that. Some people forget to establish the giving car before doing the merge. Jumping in and changing something established that as the current car in the Mod shop and will then pass items on the merge.

I have never changed something on the giving car and have never had problems
