Estimate Tip – Qapter – Masking textured bumper duplicate effort

September 1, 2023

Audatex / Qapter DBRM page 141 section 4-4 states “Masking:  Audatex refinish labor provides for masking within panel boundaries (e.g., openings, blackout effect, grilles, molded impact strips, indentations, textured/paint to match areas, etc.).”


Additional Feedback from Solera Qapter on recent DEG Inquiry 13615 “Any additional masking or duplicate effort would not be included.”


Note that any materials used for masking, INCLUDED or NOT INCLUDED, are not accounted for in any labor value.
