Second color and clear set up NOT INCLUDED

Estimating Tip: Audatex: Second color and clear set up NOT INCLUDED
Audatex DBRM  Page 152 Section 4-4 Refinish Guidelines shows that second color and clear coat set up as NOT INCLUDED in published refinish times.

Second Color Setup: Second Color Setup .4 (not two-tone) may be necessary for underhood colors, mouldings and trim where a second color is used. This is a manual entry that may be used when required.”

In addition to second color, repairers may need to perform a “second clear setup”

“Second Clear Setup: Second Clear Setup .4 may be necessary in certain circumstances to match the OEM finish (e.g. underhood, aprons, and rails needing “matte” clears). This is a manual entry that may be used when required.”
