SCRS Members,

Complete Vehicle Refinish in Mitchell - Under Procedure 28 of the Mitchell Estimating Guide states that refinish times are for new undamaged parts and not intended for calculating complete vehicle refinish.
Page 16 of the Mitchell Estimating Guide:
Refinish times in this Guide pertain to NEW, UNDAMAGED PARTS and are
not intended for calculating complete vehicle refinish-single- or multistage.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY - it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
