SCRS Members,

Blend/Refinish Quarter Panel - When blending or refinishing a quarter panel, the refinish time is for the quarter panel only and does not included the time necessary to refinish or blend the roof rail/outer upper body side. An example of this can be found in Audatex' response to DEG inquiry number 3874.
"We have reviewed your inquiry and the refinish labor to refinish or blend the outer quarter panel is for the quarter panel only. It does not include the refinish of the roof rail/outer upper body side, the estimate writer would need to add this operation."

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.
