REV. 8-11
GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
MOTOR Collision Estimating Data is based on the base model vehicle configuration, standard or regular production options, and/or standard replacement operations. "Add if required" operations are for extra procedures
necessitated by optional factory equipment or certain collision scenarios that may be encountered. "Add if
required" operations should be added to the estimate whenever applicable after an on-the-spot evaluation of vehicle damage and/or vehicle options.
CLEAN & VISUALLY INSPECT
This term is to clean the replacement assembly and to visually inspect only. Does not include measuring dimensions, trimming, or any disassembly.
COMPONENT CLASSIFICATION
The purpose of classifying components is to describe physical properties of the component, and classifications
may inform the estimator that specialized technician skill levels and/or tools may be required. Indicators are not
intended to determine labor rates charged, or to be inclusive of all components. Any additional component classification(s) should be determined after an on-the-spot evaluation of required repair procedures.
CLASSIFICATION INDICATORS ARE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE
AND MUST ONLY BE CONSIDERED A HELPFUL GUIDE.
MOTOR component classifications are defined as follows:
(M) Mechanical: Components that transform one form of motion or energy into another. Mechanical components would likely be serviced at a mechanical service facility rather than a body repair facility if that component
failed during normal operation. Mechanical components will likely require a specialized technician skill level and/or
specialized tools.
(S) Structural: Components that provide a load bearing foundation for the purpose of safety and/or stability
(no classification) Body: Components that do not fall under the mechanical or structural classification
D&R (Disconnect & Reconnect)
Some labor procedures require disconnecting (unplug and/or unbolt) of a component/assembly at the point
where it is attached to the subject part. The component assembly is not completely removed from the vehicle. The
component is reconnected during the assembly procedure. Due to various configurations and type of parts that
may be involved in the D&R operations and considering that the times involved are generally not definable in tenths
of hours, time for D&R is not provided. When D&R is necessary to perform a labor operation, it is included in that
labor operation’s time.
INCLUDED and/or NOT INCLUDED OPERATIONS
INCLUDED OPERATIONS:
When items or operations appear in the Guide to Estimating pages under the “Included” heading it means that
the operation is performed in conjunction with another operation. For example, Steering Wheel R&I is an individual operation, but when replacing a steering column, steering wheel R&I is also performed and therefore included
in Steering Column R&R.
If an item is listed without a qualifier, it means all labor has been considered within the indicated labor procedure. If a specific qualifier (such as R&I) appears, it means only the specified qualifier applies.
NOT INCLUDED OPERATIONS:
Items or operations listed under “Does Not Include” were not considered in the development of published labor
operation times. These operations may or may not be required depending upon the vehicle or repair process used.
If any of these items or operations are required, they should be considered by the estimator. If a specific qualifier
(such as R&I) appears, it means only the specified qualifier applies.

OVERHAUL
INDUSTRY DEFINITIONS
Remove an assembly from the vehicle, disassemble, clean, inspect, replace parts as needed, reassemble, install
and adjust (except wheel/suspension alignment). Overhaul time should be used only if the time for individual parts
(less overlap) is more than the overhaul time.
OVERLAP
When replacing two or more components the duplication of included labor procedures is known as overlap.
Labor procedures (R&R/R&I/D&R) that create overlap include, but are not limited to, mechanical attachment, welding, bonding and/or technician preparation.
For example, when replacing a quarter panel and rear body panel on the same vehicle, the common required
labor procedures necessary to remove and replace or reinstall these components is known as overlap.
When a labor overlap condition exists, less time is required to replace adjoining components collectively than
is required when they are replaced individually.
R&I (Remove & Reinstall)
Item is removed, set aside and later reinstalled and aligned for proper fit (does not include suspension/wheel
alignment). Generally used to gain access to another part.
If a R&I time is not available, published R&R times can be used when the steps required to R&R a component
are the same procedure steps required to R&I a component. Example: bolt- or clip-on moldings, ornamentation,
mirrors, trim, door handles, locks, cylinders, latches, and many single piece components.
R&R (Remove & Replace)
Remove damaged part and replace with salvage replacement component/assembly, and align. Does not include
suspension/wheel alignment or removal and installation of components attached to replacement part, such as
moldings, emblems, nameplates, weatherstrips, etc.
TRANSFER
This term means to remove a usable part from a damaged assembly, then transfer it to the undamaged replacement assembly. Includes removal of the like part from the replacement assembly. An example would be replacing
a salvaged door assembly on a vehicle that has tinted glass but the salvaged door is available only with clear glass,
then this operation is for the removal of the undamaged tinted glass from the old door, then removing the clear
glass from the salvaged replacement door and then installing this tinted glass to the salvaged replacement door.

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
ACOUSTICAL AND STRUCTURAL FOAM FILLERS
This type of product is used by some OEMs to control NVH
(noise, vibration and harshness) or add structural integrity to
the vehicle body. Acoustical foam is a soft to firm, pliable
product while structural foam is a hard, dense, rigid product.
Acoustical and/or structural fillers may be found internally on
vehicle panels; therefore, identification of foam type and location may require an inspection after vehicle disassembly.
Foam products must be removed if within six inches of an
open flame, excessive heat (600 degrees) or welding operation. Any foam damaged or removed during the repair process
must be replaced.
SPECIAL NOTATION:
Not all vehicles contain foam fillers; others may contain
foam fillers in one or more locations. Refer to OEM for
specific repair recommendations/procedures and
replacement product(s).
AIR CONDITIONER REFRIGERANT
Reported refrigerant capacities are FOR ESTIMATING PURPOSES ONLY. ALWAYS refer to the vehicle A/C label
or manufacturer’s service manual for recommended repair procedures and system capacity.
DAMAGED OR NON-REUSEABLE MOLDINGS AND FASTENERS
Some moldings may be damaged or broken during normal R&I procedures. Additionally, some plastic or metal
fasteners may be damaged and their ability to be reused jeopardized because of single-use design, age or exposure to the elements. Moldings, emblems and trim attached using a heat stake method are considered to be nonreusable. Caution should be taken while removing all fasteners, both metal and plastic. MOTOR recommends
these factors be considered and mutually agreed upon before finalizing any repair cost estimate.
ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS & ON-BOARD COMPUTERS
Special caution should be taken when servicing vehicles due to the wide use of computer modules, electronic
sensors and printed circuit boards. This type of equipment is very sensitive to high temperatures and voltage fluctuations, including electrostatic discharge. A few safety tips you should consider are:
•
•
•
•
•
Disconnect battery cable
Computer modules should not be exposed to temperatures exceeding OEM recommendations
Remove component if necessary
Discharge static electricity before handling component(s)
Avoid touching electrical terminals of component
I-CAR’s Uniform Procedures for Collision Repair states that electronic components should be removed from the
vehicle if welding is to take place within 12 inches of the component. Refer to manufacturer’s specific recommendations for each vehicle.
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
Regulations and safety considerations may require protective clothing, respirator, protective eyeglasses, and/or
ear plugs be worn in certain areas of collision repair facilities. Caution must be exercised when dealing with isocyanates, flammables, fumes, liquids and airborne particles.

REV. 8-11
GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
WARNING: HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM!
These vehicles are equipped with high voltage batteries and are capable of causing electrical shock. Failure to
use caution in the proper disconnection of this electrical system may result in serious injury or death. For safety
and ease of identification, electrical cables carrying the high voltage are colored orange. Any orange-colored cable
should be avoided until the high voltage electrical system has been disabled. Follow OEM safety precautions
including wearing personal protective equipment rated for working on Hybrid/Electric Vehicles. Follow OEM service repair information for disabling the high voltage electrical system before beginning any repairs.
OEM COLLISION REPAIR NETWORK
Some OEM(s) manufacture aluminum vehicles that have an established repair network for these vehicles and
require collision repairs to be performed at an OEM authorized aluminum repair center. Manufacturers with collision repair networks covered in MOTOR’s guide are Audi, BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes Benz. Refer to the OEM for
complete information on collision repair network program.
PANEL BONDING (Metal Adhesives)
OEM labor procedures for “panel bonding” requires different procedural steps versus welding, such as
panel/vehicle preparation, sectioning insert/sleeve, additional panel fit and adhesive application unless otherwise
specified in a footnote attached to the sectioning operation. MOTOR published welded panel replacement labor
times may be applied for “panel bonding” and would include all the additional procedure steps as outlined by the
OEM. Refer to the Guide to Estimating pages for specific INCLUDED/NOT INCLUDED operations. An adjustment
in time may or may not apply after an on-the-spot evaluation of required procedures. Refer to OEM for specific
repair recommendations/procedures and replacement product(s).
REFINISH CLEAR COAT APPLICATION
Most major paint manufacturers recommend that when performing refinish repairs on an OEM base coat/clear
coat or multistage finishes, the application of clear coat must be extended to the nearest panel edge or breakpoint
to qualify for their lifetime refinish warranties.
RESTRAINT SYSTEM (Air Bag)
NOTE: RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, REPLACEMENT COMPONENTS and INSPECTION COMPONENTS are FOR
ESTIMATING PURPOSES ONLY. Wiring repairs should only be performed in accordance with vehicle manufacturer specifications. Air bag components should never be refinished. Refinishing these components will alter the original design and change deployment characteristics. Always refer to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended
repair procedures when servicing any air bag system.
Before repairing any air bag system, disconnect and isolate the battery cable so that any back-up power supply is discharged for the time period stipulated by the manufacturer to prevent accidental deployment when working on the vehicle. All system components and mounting areas must be inspected before energizing the system.
On some vehicles the windshield is considered an integral component of the overall system and has specific
requirements regarding materials and procedures used when replacing a windshield. Factory recommended procedures must be followed when servicing this type of system. Some vehicles are equipped with dual stage air
bags. The air bags are deployed at different rates depending on the severity of the crash, seat belt usage and driver position. If a dual stage air bag has deployed, it is possible that only one stage has deployed. If both stages
have not deployed, there is a danger of the second stage deploying if the air bag is not properly handled. On vehicles that are equipped with dual stage air bags, ensure the air bag system is disabled before performing any repair
procedures. The air bag should then be properly disposed of. Refer to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended
procedures for air bag disposal.
Estimated Work Times for disabling vehicle safety restraint systems have been developed for instances where
the OEM-recommended procedure steps required to disable the system are in addition to steps required to deenergize the vehicle by disconnecting the battery and/or removing a readily accessible fuse.
RESTRAINT SYSTEMS (Seat Belt)
Many automobile manufacturers recommend seat belt components be replaced when subjected to stress by
occupants in a collision. Check the manufacturer for specific repair recommendations and procedures.

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
SAFETY NOTICE
Proper repair procedures are vital to the safe and reliable operation of all motor vehicles. The various operation
descriptions listed throughout this guide should not be construed as exact repair procedures or methods. These
will, of course, vary with the nature and extent of collision damage. Obviously, there are circumstances or situations where it would be inappropriate and unsafe to utilize replacement assemblies on a particular collision repair
job. The best and safest method of repairs should be determined by the collision professionals involved using
sound judgment and experience together with the vehicle manufacturer’s latest repair recommendations.
This publication is no more than a GUIDE for estimating collision damage. It should be used with the same prudence that you would use with any other guide.
All replacement assemblies should be thoroughly checked for safety. Parts such as suspension and steering
should be inspected for any wear or damage that would hinder the safe use of these components. The listed operation times contained in this manual are not an endorsement or recommendation of the use of these components.
SALVAGED ASSEMBLIES - GENERAL
SPECIAL NOTATION:
The collision repair facility must have the equipment, training, and experience using the latest factory/industry
information and procedures. Ultimately, the safety and quality of any repair will depend not only on the equipment
that is used and the procedure that is followed, but also on the skill and knowledge of the repair technicians, the
steps they take to control repair quality and how well they check the details of the repair.
Some repair operations reported in this guide may be beyond the capability of the repair shop in terms of equipment, skill and knowledge, etc. In this case the repair shop should not attempt the repair.
MOTOR Information Systems or anyone connected with it assumes no liability of any kind for any loss or damage suffered by any party for the use of salvaged replacement assemblies or the method in which these parts are
installed. It is the repair shop’s responsibility to install these parts in a safe and proper manner. Therefore, it is the
repair shop who must assume all liability in the choice, condition and installation of salvaged parts, particularly unibody structural parts. MOTOR Information Systems expressly disclaims all warranties, obligations and liabilities,
either expressed or implied, in the use of this guide. MOTOR Information Systems neither assumes, nor authorizes any party to assume for it, any liability in connection with the use of this guide.
Extreme care and caution should always be used when performing collision repairs on all vehicles. All repairs
must be of the highest quality using the latest factory recommended repair procedures with the following concerns
kept in mind:
• Passenger Protection - Replacing damaged parts of a car designed to crush in a collision may reduce
occupant protection in a future collision if the structural integrity is not restored.
• Safety & Handling - An improper repair can create braking, handling, vibration and noise problems. This
may lead to possible safety problems.
• Corrosion Protection - A vehicle’s ability to resist corrosion may be reduced if improper repairs are made
and the manufacturer’s corrosion protection is not restored. This may lead to future safety and/or resale
value problems.
• Resale Value - The resale value of a vehicle can be reduced dramatically by improper repairs which may
lead to a financial loss to the vehicle owner.
SECTIONING
Sectioning is an industry accepted procedure which involves replacing a vehicles welded body panel (quarter,
rocker, rail, etc.) onto the undamaged portion of a vehicle body at a location other than at a factory seam. This may
or may not be factory recommended procedure. Special care and training is required when sectioning any part due
to the wide use of special steels and vehicle design. Repairs of this type should only be performed in accordance
with the OEM service repair information, if available. When sectioning procedures are not available from the vehicle maker, it may be possible to section a part using vehicle-specific procedures developed by research organizations such as Tech-Cor and/or general sectioning guidelines taught by I-CAR. Please visit www.i-car.com/partialreplacement for more information.
The sectioning location may be affected after an on-the-spot evaluation of the vehicle’s inner structure design.

REV. 8-11
GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
Some vehicle manufacturers use special or alternative metals in the construction of their vehicles. When possible, parts made from one of the seven listed metals will be identified using the abbreviations shown below.
It is not always possible or practical to identify where special or alternative metals are used on a vehicle. Do not
assume that a part NOT IDENTIFIED AS SPECIAL METAL ISN’T ACTUALLY MADE OF SPECIAL METAL. When in
doubt, it is recommended that you contact the vehicle manufacturer for further information. WHEN PERFORMING
REPAIRS TO SPECIAL METAL SUBSTRATES, REFER TO OEM RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SPECIFIC INFORMATION. IMPROPER REPAIRS MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY AND SAFETY OF THE
VEHICLE.
ALUMINUM (ALU): Aluminum is lighter than steel and is non-magnetic. Aluminum is sensitive to galvanic corrosion. Only use fasteners, tools and materials that are designated for use on aluminum. Heat limitations MUST be
observed when working with this type of metal.
BORON STEEL (BOR): Boron steel has extremely high strength; do not use heat on this type of metal. It cannot be straightened because of the extremely high heat used in the forming process. The only solution for damage is replacement. Boron steel can be cut with a cutoff wheel. Drilling boron steel is very difficult and may be
accomplished using a titanium drill bit combined with slow speed (490 rpm).
HIGH STRENGTH STEEL (HSS): Generally frame rails, inner rocker panels, suspension crossmembers and
upper apron rails are made of this material (this varies by manufacturer). Heat limitations MUST be observed when
working with this type of steel. When in doubt, most manufacturers recommend all steel be treated as HSS steel.
HYDROFORMED STEEL (HYD): Hydroformed parts may be sectioned depending on the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. Heat limitations MUST be observed when working with this type of steel.
MAGNESIUM (MAG): Magnesium is much lighter, stronger and more resistant to corrosion than steel.
Magnesium has the tendency to crack or break either from collision damage or during straightening due to its
quick work-hardening characteristics. Magnesium is also not weldable with common collision repair facility GMA
(MIG) welding capabilities. Do not use oxyacetylene equipment or plasma arc cutting equipment around this or any
other magnesium part. If magnesium catches on fire, it requires a class D fire extinguisher.
SANDWICHED STEEL (SAS): This type of steel (OEMs may have other names) is being used on the dash panels, floor panels and oil pans, etc. This product has an engineered non-steel layer sandwiched between two cold
rolled layers of steel; do not use heat on this type of metal unless recommended by OEM. It is used to help lower
sound levels and vibration. This product may or may not be weldable with common collision repair facility GMA
(MIG) welding.
ULTRA HIGH STRENGTH STEEL (UHS): Generally door guard beams, bumper reinforcements and other special purpose areas contain this type of steel. These parts must not be repaired. They are to be replaced only.
Contact the vehicle manufacturer for applicable locations. This information supersedes information published in
previous Guide to Estimating pages.
NOTE:
Due to space limitations, special substrate metals information is not available in
MOTOR CEG Online or DVD products.
STEERING COLUMN
Many vehicle manufacturers use collapsible steering columns to absorb energy sustained from a collision
impact. These columns should be inspected for proper length, binding and deformation among other specific considerations. Failure to do so may prevent proper operation of steering column and/or air bag deployment. MOTOR
recommends following vehicle manufacturer’s guidelines for inspection and replacement of these components.
STONE CHIP GUARD (Protective Material)
Vehicle manufacturers may apply a spray-on, chip-resistant coating to protect the vehicle’s finish from chipping.
This type of coating may be named differently depending on manufacturer ex.: Stone Guard, Soft-chip Primer, PVC
Chipping Primer, Chip Guard, Gravel Guard, etc. This type of coating is designed to reduce paint chipping; appearance varies from textured surface to a smooth surface. Chip-resistant coatings may be applied to the vehicle’s
lower body and/or leading edges of the body. Refer to OEM service repair information for specific location, repair
recommendations and/or replacement product(s). MOTOR recommends following OEM service repair information
for replacement of these materials following a thorough on-the-spot evaluation of vehicle and damage in question.

STRUCTURAL GLASS
Urethane bonded stationary glass such as windshields, side/quarter glass and back glass adds structural
integrity to a vehicle’s body and may be considered a structural component on some vehicles. Therefore, it is
important to use proper materials and procedures when installing this type of glass. I-CAR and some vehicle manufacturers recommend the use of epoxy primer on glass pinchweld where coating has been removed. Utilization
of incorrect methods or materials could result in a failure to restore the vehicle’s original structural integrity.
Removal of some undamaged urethane bonded glass for reuse may not be possible due to damaging plastic locating studs and/or attached moldings. Some vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing glass that has been
removed with new OEM glass. It is MOTOR’s position that removal of the glass from the damaged part/panel for
reuse is a process best reserved for the judgment of an estimator/appraiser following a thorough review of vehicle manufacturer guidelines.

GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
All refinish times are listed in hours and tenths of an hour. A time in parenthesis adjacent to the part name, such
as (p3.5) indicates three and one half hours. Replacement operation time does not include time necessary to refinish the component.
Operation times for the application of painted on stripes are not covered in this publication. The time necessary
to perform this type of operation should be estimated after an on-the-spot evaluation of required procedure.
REFINISH TIME PREMISE
Published refinish times are for one color applied to new undamaged replacement components, without exterior trim, interior trim or other attached components and applied in one continuous process. For damaged panel(s),
published refinish times may be applied after the damaged panel has been returned to a NEW UNDAMAGED condition.
Refinish times do not include time which may be required to match color tints or defective finish textures on
interior or exterior surfaces, nor do they include time which may be required to correct finish imperfections caused
by improper weather conditions, application, or environmental contamination such as dust, dirt, grease, etc.
MOTOR advises all parties consider these factors beforehand to determine mutually acceptable provisions in the
event such conditions exist or occur.
ANTI-THEFT LABELS (R DOT)
Replacement part labels are coded with the letter “R” to show that it is a replacement part. R Dot labels should
not be removed from the part. Use caution when refinishing, rustproofing or undercoating replacement components to avoid damaging the label.
BUMPER COVERS AND OTHER FLEXIBLE COMPONENTS
Refinish times listed on the operation detail line for these items are based on the items being refinished prior to
installation. It includes exterior surface and edges refinished during one continuous process. Masking the black
grained, textured, or non-body color portions in preparation for body color application is an included operation. If
a separate edging procedure is utilized then the appropriate time should be estimated after an on-the-spot evaluation.
DOOR SHELLS, LIFT GATES AND TAIL GATES
Refinish times listed on the parts detail line for these components include exterior surface, edges and interior
sides unless otherwise noted in text.
Refinish times listed under the "Refinishing Notes" heading for "door outer panel only" operations do not include
time for refinishing the door frame edge or interior side. Where possible, MOTOR will publish time for those areas
under a "Refinishing Notes" heading within that group.
FENDERS, HOODS, TRUNK LIDS AND OTHER MAJOR BOLTED PANELS
Refinish times listed on the parts detail line for these new panels do not include time for refinishing the edge or
underside. Where possible, MOTOR will publish time for those areas under a “Refinishing Notes” heading within
that group.
QUARTER PANELS AND OTHER MAJOR WELDED PANELS
Refinish times listed on the parts detail line for these new panels include exterior side, recessed edges, gutters
and pockets, unless otherwise noted in text.
Refinish times listed under the “Refinishing Notes” heading for quarter panels or other major welded panels
“exterior surface only” operations do not include time for refinishing recessed edges, gutters and pockets. Where
possible, MOTOR will publish time for these areas under the “Refinishing Notes” heading within that group.
NEW UNDAMAGED PANEL
A component manufactured to the same exacting standards as the parts installed on new vehicles when the car
was built. Exterior body panels are supplied with a smooth painted surface (e-coat).
UNDERSIDE COLORS
Refinish times presented in this guide are developed under the premise that the underside and jamb color is the
same as the exterior body color. Some vehicle manufacturers use a different color for the engine compartment,
trunk compartment and/or jambs. An additional paint mix is required if the underside and/or jamb color is a different color than the exterior body color. Clear coat (gloss or matte) will be required for base color coat applications.
This should be considered when developing the estimate.
PRIME & BLOCK
Prime & block (high build/primer-filler) is a required procedure that restores a repaired panel surface, including
the joined areas of replaced welded panels, from 150-grit finish to NEW UNDAMAGED condition. It is MOTOR’s
position that prime and block is a process best reserved for the judgment of an estimator/appraiser following a
thorough on-the-spot evaluation of the specific vehicle and damage in question.

GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
REFINISH TIME PREMISE - Continued
REFINISHING PROCEDURES
REPAIRED PANEL REFINISHING
MOTOR suggests using component(s) base refinish time for this type of procedure after the damaged panel is
repaired to new undamaged condition. Repaired surface preparation requires an on-the-spot evaluation for additional procedural steps such as featheredge and/or prime and block not required for new undamaged panels.
PARTIAL PANEL REFINISHING
This is NOT a BLEND-WITHIN procedure; partial panel refinishing is NOT a BLEND operation. MOTOR defines
partial panel refinishing as refinishing a body panel with damage that is contained within a defined border or underneath body cladding after the panel has been repaired to that of a “NEW UNDAMAGED PANEL.” It is MOTOR’s
position that partial panel refinishing is a process best reserved for the judgment of an estimator/appraiser following a thorough on-the-spot evaluation of the specific vehicle and refinish requirements in question. Refer to G.T.E.
“BASIC COLOR COAT APPLICATION.”
SPECIAL NOTATION:
The items or operations below were not considered during the development of any published basic refinish operation times. These operations may or may not be required depending upon the vehicle or process
used. If any of these items or operations are required, they should be considered by the estimator and
added to the estimate if necessary.
REFINISH, WET/DRY SAND, DE-NIB AND/OR RUB-OUT TIME DOES NOT INCLUDE:
• Anti-corrosion material application
• Filling, blocking, featheredging repaired panels
• Flex additive mixing time
• Flex prep application
• Material costs
• Mask inner panels ex: apron/cowl/pillars/rail/floor, etc.
• Molding & ornamentation
• Protective coating material application
• Protective coating removal
• Sound deadening application
• Spatter paint application time
• Stripe tape, decal & overlay
• Waste disposal fees (all types)
PANEL and/or COMPONENT DESIGNATION
MAJOR PANELS/COMPONENTS
All panels or components with a base refinish time of 1.0 hour or greater are generally considered by MOTOR
to be major panels. Example: grille header panel, fender, hood, cowl top panel, doors, roof panel, rocker panel,
quarter panel, engine lid, trunk lid, lift gate, rear gate, rear body panel, truck cab corner and back panel, truck bed
front and side panel and van side and corner panels.
MINOR PANELS/COMPONENTS
All panels or components with a base refinish time of less than 1.0 hour.
FLEXIBLE PANELS/COMPONENTS
All panels or components for which paint systems require a flex agent added to the paint mix. Example: fascia
covers, fillers, extensions, spoilers, etc.
No overlap deduction should be taken when calculating refinish time for a single item from this category.
A combination of items from this category refinished during a single, continuous procedure should be subject
to the appropriate “Adjacent” or “Non-Adjacent” overlap formula deduction.
When a flex agent or a separate paint mix procedure is not required and when the flexible component is refinished during the same procedure with major or minor components, then flexible components should be considered the same designation as major or minor components for the purpose of calculating refinish overlap deductions and/or multi-stage refinishing additions.
INDIVIDUAL PROCEDURE ITEMS/AREAS
Areas of a panel or component that are part of a main component, but are refinished during a procedure separate from the main component. Example: edges, jambs, hinges, inside panels and the underside of hoods, deck
lids, liftgates, etc. No overlap deduction should be taken when calculating refinish time for items from this category.

GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
SPECIAL NOTATION:
Suggested refinish operation times do not include additional time for repair of damage to adjacent panels
resulting from normal cutting, welding and grinding procedures. The amount of damage can vary
considerably depending upon process and technique used by the servicing technician, and therefore is
impractical to anticipate in this publication. MOTOR recommends these factors be considered before
finalizing any repair cost estimate. Typical areas to be considered are illustrated below.
DE-NIB & POLISH
SPECIAL NOTATION:
Refinished panels may or may not require a varying amount of de-nibbing, a process used to remove
small particles in final finish surface. The clear coat contains ultraviolet screeners and reducing the clear
coat thickness (mils) may result in early paint failure. Follow vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations
when performing this type of repairs. Calculations should be based upon the base refinish time outer surface only and should not include additions for clear coat, underside, inside or edges. In the event that
this type of operation will be performed, MOTOR suggests the following formula be considered:
• Each panel requiring wet sand, rub-out and/or buff (refinish or blend):
HOOD, ROOF, TRUNK LID, SPOILER
First panel add up to 20% of full base refinish time, each additional panel add up to 10%
FENDER, DOOR, QUARTER PANEL, BUMPER COVER
First panel add up to 10% of full base refinish time, each additional panel add up to 5%
INCLUDED:
• Panel outer surface only
• Paint nib removal as required (spot only)
• Spot polish only
DOES NOT INCLUDE:

SPECIAL NOTATION:
Refinished panels may or may not require a varying amount of wet sanding, compound rub-out, or buffing
operations in order to match original finish texture. The clear coat contains ultraviolet screeners and
reducing the clear coat thickness (mils) may result in early paint failure. Follow manufacturer’s recommendations when performing this type of repairs. Calculations should be based upon the outer surface
only and should not include additions for clear coat, underside, inside or edges. Base refinish time does
not include deduction for refinish overlap. In the event that this type of operation will be performed,
MOTOR suggests the following formula be considered:
• Each panel requiring wet sand, rub-out and/or buff (refinish or blend):
Add 30% of full base refinish time
