Estimating Tip: Mitchell- Interior masking for truck bed refinish (AMMENDED RESPONSE)

Inquiry 19742 provides feedback regarding NOT INCLUDED interior bed masking operation. Mitchell provides additional interior masking calculations in page 28 refinish procedure

Interior masking may be necessary when refinishing exterior surfaces to stop overspray damage that is not prevented by adjacent panel perimeter masking up to 36 inches or substitute with cover vehicle (bag) complete, which includes back taping or application of foam tape.

Should additional masking be required the estimating system provides functionality to allow the user to manually input masking operations.


”The .5 represents masking the entire opening of the bed to prevent overspray from getting inside the bed while the painter is refinishing multiple outer panels of the bed or performing a refinish bed complete.

In a case where only a single bedside is being refinished this additional time to mask the opening would generally not apply.  “
