In DayZ Borealis it is possible to reinforce your vehicle - installing metal armor on glass, doors/trunk lid and (or) wheels. To do this, you need to find scrap metal and blowtorch.

How to Reinforce Your Vehicle

To Reinforce your vehicle, you will need a different amount of scrap metal. To reinforce the front and rear windows or reinforce the wheels, you will need 4 scrap metal. To reinforce doors or trunk lid, you will need 2 scrap metal for each door/trunk lid.

Reinforcement of front and rear windows or vehicle wheels

In order to reinforce the front and rear windows or wheels of vehicles, in addition to scrap metal, we need a blowtorch and gas for it.

You need to put scrap metal into the scrap metal slot of your vehicle. Next, you need to pick up the blowtorch. After you hover over your vehicle, you will have actions related to reinforcing the vehicle. You can also remove the installed reinforcement on the vehicle using the blowtorch.

Reinforcement of doors and trunk lid

For reinforcing doors or trunk lid, unlike reinforcing the front and rear windows or wheels, you do not need a gas burner. In order to assemble a reinforced door, you just need to pick up 2 scrap metal and aim at the desired door/trunk lid, after which you will have an action related to reinforcement of door/trunk lid.
