Can you show us visually what you mean?

That's quite a good way to do it. Select the faces, and detach faces. Then work on the interior as a separate model. Cut, and paste should maintain the original position.

The intrude function in most modelling programs would be very useful for this. Model the exterior, then intrude where the door is and the windows. (don't model the door as part of the exterior). Then move/delete verts and make the interior.

Not sure what modeling software you are using but here is an example for Wings3d.
Most other modeling software has the same features.
The tutorial is for a plane but it would also apply to a car.
It shows how to quickly model the interior.

I would start with the lower part of the car (wheels, "floor") then model the interior and then everything else around it. this way you have a much better overview of the cars interior while working on it.

This tutorial is for Max but the basics are the same for any package.
