CCC- Refinishing Jeep Wrangler/ Gladiator Flares
Repairers having to refinish late model Jeep Wrangler / Gladiator fender / bedside flares will need to mask the textured, unpainted areas. The labor to mask the textured areas is INCLUDED per CCC/MOTOR Refinishing Time Premise >> Bumper covers and other flexible components “Masking the grained, textured, or non-body color portions in preparation for body color application is an included operation.”
Two Recent DEG Inquiry 19008 & Inquiry 19016 have led to labor updates on the refinishing time, increasing it from 1.2 to 1.8 hours on the front and 1.6 hours on the rear flares. The increased labor time was adjusted to account for the additional masking operations.
Additional note: Masking of textured areas on any flexible component is only included 1 time. If additional masking is needed, this would require an on-the-spot evaluation. All material costs associated with masking are NOT INCLUDED.
