No worries, the way I see it every extra hurdle I have to overcome on the way is added value.
I encountered something that anyone else trying to work through the tutorial in 2.8 might come up against:
When doing the side rear windows, a crease value of 1 won’t give you a sharp corner unless you set the subsurf modifier quality to 1 - this setting ins’t there in 2.79, probably something to do with the opensubdiv tinkerings in 2.8.
Also, after applying the subsurf modifier, in 2.79 the crease value is reset to 0, whereas in 2.8 those edges still have a crease value of 1. I had to manually reset the crease value to 0 in order to get the same result as I followed along with the next few steps
All to be expected as things change, and might change again in the future, just thought I’d put in in here to help anyone else that might get stuck if they’re using 2.8
