SCRS Members,

Clear Coat Panels in Audatex To make sure you receive clear coat for inner panels in Audatex you must have Two-Stage listed under the vehicle section of the estimate. This section is just above the vehicle options section.

Example 1 below shows Two-Stage next to Int. Refinish so this estimate will calculate clear coat for inner panels.

Example 2 below does NOT show Two-Stage next to Int. Refinish so this estimate would not calculate clear coat for inner panels.

This is very important to review with all estimates but most important when the estimate user has the option selected to NOT show the refinish breakdown under the refinish line.

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.
