SCRS Members,

Clear Coat Extension in Audatex - Audatex does not have a clear coat only formula so if there is a need to extend your clear coat to an adjacent panel the user must select either the full refinish of the panel, blend for the panel or create a manual entry. An example would be when repairing a quarter panel and there is no line to stop the clear coat so you must clear into the roof and possibly the other quarter. This can be found in DEG inquiry 8462.

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.
