Hood Underside 2nd color in Audatex

On some vehicles the underside of the hood or the inside of other parts may be a different color than the outside. It may be a greenish or grayish color and possible some other color that is not the same as the outside color. So when replacing a hood there will be time needed to mix and refinish the outside and also time needed to mix another time and refinish the inside because it is a different color. So is the mixing of the second color for the inside an included operation with the exterior refinish in Audatex? NO it is not. The DEG has submitted in inquiry to Audatex asking this question and the response from Audatex was additional time should be added for the mix of the second color. The system is not automated which means within the estimating system we can click for the option to mix an additional color so we must create a manual line for this operation. Below is the inquiry and also the response from Audatex.

DEG Inquiry 3913

Issue Summary-Hoods underside is a 2nd color (greyish) with c/c. Is the underside time the same as 1 color? If so how is the second mix of paint calculated in the labor since not all applications require a second mix?

Response from Audatex

We have reviewed your inquiry, if you are replacing the hood and select two-stage interior the estimate writer needs to add a manual entry for the second color setup. This is covered in the reference manual (see attachment), if the hood underside is being only repaired the writer only needs to select the hood underside from the parts choice box and two-stage interior.

 

The above example would be for replacement of a hood and as the resolution states if you are repairing the hood then you can select the hood underside from the parts choice. This inquiry can be found on our website by visiting www.degweb.org and typing the inquiry number (3913) in the search box located on the right side of the website. While there you can also submit an inquiry if you have any questions or issues in regards to your estimating system or browse our extensive database of submitted inquires.
