SCRS Members,

Covering Vehicle For Weld Damage - Covering the interior and adjacent panels to prevent weld spark damage during welding is a not included operation in CCC. This is explained in DEG inquiry number 7851:

"According to the MOTOR Guide To Estimating, "Items that are not listed under the INCLUDED/DOES NOT INCLUDE heading for any given procedure have not been considered in the estimated work time development for that procedure, unless specified by a footnote." Therefore, the additional work to cover and protect items are not included and should be an on the spot evaluation.
