Motor/CCC Updated P-Pages

Motor has released an updated P-Page for CCC One estimating. When reading the P-Pages anything that is new for this update will be written in blue. For example on page G5 you will see an updated paragraph outlining Frame setup. Another change is with bumper absorbers. This update clarifies that energy absorbers are part of the bumper overhaul only when the absorber is attached to the cover.
