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" inspection of vehicle
damage and/or vehicle options.
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.
FRAME MACHINE SET-UP
Due to the different types of frame machines used in the collision repair industry, labor times for frame machine set-up are not
developed by MOTOR, nor otherwise included in any operation.
Each frame machine manufacturer may have its own unique configurations and setup processes. For example, some machines are
of a “drive-on” type while others are of a “dedicated bench” type,
and there are procedural differences between the two set-up methods. Additionally, there may be variables unique to the actual vehicle that may increase or decrease frame machine set-up time.
MOTOR suggests using an on-the-spot evaluation to determine an
appropriate frame machine set-up time.
REV. 11-15
INCLUDED and/or NOT INCLUDED LABOR
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.
NAGS - GLASS PRICES
Glass Prices: We include, when available, both the vehicle manufacturer and the NAGS benchmark prices as applicable to each
make and model. All NAGS part numbers and benchmark prices
are provided from National Auto Glass Specifications, a division of
Mitchell International, Inc. Labor operation times listed on the line
with the NAGS information are MOTOR suggested labor operation
times; NAGS labor operation times are not included.
OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)
Used to define original vehicle manufacturer.
OVERHAUL
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. Overhaul operations include component R&R
procedure steps and inclusions unless otherwise noted.
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.
Overlap labor information is generally included at the beginning
of each group or subgroup within each chapter.

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 an 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. For example, bolt- or clipon moldings, ornamentation, mirrors, trim, door handles, locks,
cylinders, latches and many single-piece components. In addition,
an equal sign (=) printed after an R&R time indicates MOTOR has
evaluated an operation and determined that the R&R time may be
used as the R&I time.
R&R (Remove & Replace)
Remove old part, transfer necessary items to new part (unless
otherwise noted in Labor Procedure pages), replace and align.
Does not include Suspension/Wheel alignment.
STRUCTURAL COMPONENT
IDENTIFICATION
Structural component identification information as presented in
I-CAR Enhanced Delivery programs.
Welded structural parts can be made from different types of
metal. Identification is not based on metal type. Replacement
requires specific measuring equipment and vehicle dimensions

ACOUSTICAL AND STRUCTURAL FOAM
FILLERS
ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS & ON-BOARD
COMPUTERS
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 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:
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).
•
•
•
•
•
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.
HYBRID/ELECTRIC VEHICLES
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 orangecolored 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
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-REUSABLE 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 non-reusable. 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.
REV. 11-15
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.
OEM COMPONENT REPLACEMENT GENERAL
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.

GUIDE TO ESTIMATING
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
OEM COMPONENT REPLACEMENT GENERAL - Continued
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 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 any vehicle. 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.
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 necessary 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).
PARTS SUPPLIED IN COLOR
Some replacement components such as instrument panels, trim
panels and moldings can be ordered in various colors and therefore may not require painting. In some instances specific colors
may no longer be available from the manufacturer and therefore
would require painting. MOTOR recommends the availability of
appropriate replacement colors be confirmed before finalizing any
estimate of repairs. Refinishing time should be added if needed
color is not available.
NOTE: Air bag components should never be refinished.
Refinishing these components will alter the original design and
change deployment characteristics.
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.
G8
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 de-energize the vehicle by disconnecting the battery and/or removing a readily accessible fuse.
RESTRAINT SYSTEM (Seat Belt)
Many automobile manufacturers recommend seat belt components be replaced when subjected to stress by occupants in a collision. Check with the manufacturer for specific repair recommendations and procedures.
SECTIONING
Sectioning is an industry accepted procedure which involves
replacing a vehicle’s 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 a 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
http://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.
The labor time premise (included/not included operations) for a
sectioned panel is considered to be the same as for the full panel
replacement, unless otherwise specified in a footnote attached to
the sectioning operation. The on-the-spot evaluation will define
inclusions/non-inclusions unique to the collision scenario and/or
the sectioning approach chosen.
REV. 11-15
SPECIAL SUBSTRATES
SPECIAL SUBSTRATE METALS - Continued
Some vehicle manufacturers use special or alternative materials
in the construction of their vehicles. When possible, parts made
from one of the eight listed materials will be identified using the
abbreviations shown below.
It is not always possible or practical to identify where special or
alternative materials are used on a vehicle. Do not assume that a
part not identified as special material isn’t actually made of a special material. When in doubt, it is recommended that you contact
the vehicle manufacturer for further information. When performing
repairs to special substrates, refer to OEM recommendations for
specific information. Improper repairs may adversely affect the
structural integrity and safety of the vehicle.
SHEET MOLDING COMPOUND (SMC): A high strength glassreinforced thermoset molding material which is normally compression-molded and is used on some vehicle body outer panels and
radiator supports. Manufacturers may have repair options for these
types of non-structural parts. Reparability options depend on the
manufacturer’s recommendations and procedures. Only use materials that are designated for use on sheet molded compounds.
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.
ALUMINUM (ALU): Aluminum is lighter than steel and is nonmagnetic. 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).
CARBON FIBER COMPOSITE (CFC): Visible weave carbon
fiber (non-painted) and non-visible weave carbon fiber (painted)
parts are extremely lightweight and strong. Structural carbon fiber
parts will require replacement if damaged. Manufacturers may
have repair options for non-structural parts such as exterior panels, provided that the damage does not extend to an edge.
Reparability options depend on the manufacturer’s recommendations and procedures. Only use fasteners, tools and materials that
are designated for use on carbon fiber.
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.
REV. 11-15
Note:
Due to space limitations, special substrate 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.

DRILLING OPERATIONS
Service components may be inconsistently delivered by the
manufacturer with mounting holes drilled at the factory. Drilling
time should be added to the estimate if a component is received
without mounting holes pre-drilled.
Time to drill holes is listed in parentheses next to the part
description or in an “add if required” operation. For example, (d.2)
indicates 0.2 for drilling. This time should be added to the estimate
when it is determined a drilling operation is required. Time shown
is for round holes only. Estimate time accordingly if holes must be
a shape other than round.
CONSIDERED:
• If new parts are used on a new panel,
add drilling time and one half the
replacement time

REFINISH TIME LISTINGS
REFINISH TIME PREMISE - Continued
All refinish times are listed in hours and tenths of an hour. A time
in parentheses 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.
DOOR SHELLS, LIFTGATES AND TAILGATES - Continued
REFINISH TIME PREMISE
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.
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 parts detail lines for these components are based on the items being refinished prior to installation.
Refinish time listed on the parts detail line for an OEM bumper
cover that has both body color and unpainted grained portion
allows for the refinish of the body color only. Masking the grained,
textured, or non-body color portions in preparation for body color
application is an included operation. It includes exterior surface
and edges refinished during one continuous process. If a separate
edging procedure is utilized then the appropriate time should be
estimated after an on-the-spot evaluation. Refinish times do not
include removal of mold release agent from new unprimed molded
components. Parts received from the OEM manufacturer without
primer and some non-OEM parts with or without primer should be
tested for the presence of release agents that would cause paint
adhesion problems and treated accordingly. For unprimed bumper
preparation time, see "Add If Required" operation(s). Preparation
time for all other unprimed components should be estimated after
an on-the-spot evaluation. For unprimed component preparation
time, see Unprimed Flexible Component Preparation on page G39.
DOOR OUTER REPAIR PANELS
Refinish times listed on the parts detail line for new repair panels (i.e. door outer repair panel, tailgate and liftgate repair panels)
include panel lip and immediate area. It does not include time for
refinishing the entire door frame edge or interior side. Where possible, MOTOR will publish time for those areas under a “Refinishing
Notes” heading within that group.
DOOR SHELLS, LIFTGATES AND TAILGATES
Refinish times listed on the parts detail line for these new components include exterior surface, edges and interior sides, unless
otherwise noted in text.
G34
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
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
refinishing 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.
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
MOTOR defines partial panel refinishing as refinishing an area
within a damaged body panel or underneath body cladding after
the panel has been repaired to that of a “NEW UNDAMAGED
PANEL,” for the purpose of creating an undetectable color transition. The blend formula should NOT be used to determine refinish
times for Partial Panel Refinishing.

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.
DEDUCTIONS TO BASIC REFINISH TIMES

• Each additional inner part with a base time of 0.5 hour
or greater:
- Deduct 0.2 per part
Inner part with a base time less than 0.5 hour:
- No deduct
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, liftgate,
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.

mix is required if the underside color is a different color than
the exterior body color. Clear coat (gloss or matte) will be
required for base color coat applications.
INCLUDED:
• Refer to specific
vehicle text for
estimated time
allowance
• Use full refinishing time without
deduction for
overlap

WELD ZONE/ADJACENT PANEL
WET/DRY SAND, RUB-OUT & BUFF
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.
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 repair.
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:

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 repair. 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 de-nibbing (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:
• Acid rain damage
• Full panel polish
• Overspray removal
• Removal of residual material from recessed edges and
jambs if required
• Scratch damage
• Wash, clean, wax or detail entire vehicle prior to delivery if
required
• Wet sand full panel
