Prep Unprimed Bumper In CCC One - On certain vehicles, the option to "Prep Unprimed Bumper" may not show in CCC One. It is not to be implied that because this option is missing from the estimating system, that it is not required. A new addition to the Motor Guide to Estimating states:
"An operation for the preparation of unprimed bumpers will be provided whenever such manufacturing information has been made available by the OEM. However, this information may not be available at the time of publication, and preparation for unprimed bumpers may still be required, even though a published operation is not present."
This can be found on page G34 of the Motor Guide to Estimating. A current copy and previous copies of the Motor Guide can be viewed here on the DEG website.
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.
