Issue Summary: DBRM states that 1 spray out panel card is included in two stage set up (.6). Our spray out is done in a separate operation prior to the vehicle being in the booth. Since a spray out panel / tint process requires a spray gun set up, mix color for spray out application, apply material, clean spray equipment. Mix clear coat / set up spray equipment, apply clear to spray out panel and clean spray gun from clear coat. Becasue of the spray out panel/ card/ color tint is done in a compeltly separate operation before the first panel is actually started on refinishing. Multiple gun set up/ cleaning is required prior to refinishing the vehicle.

Special Labor or Material Considerations:

Estimated Part Surface Area: square inches

Suggested Action: Please advise if an on the spot evaluation would be warranted or was this already factored into the first spray out card/ color tint process? Also, Is the Clear Coat application for the spray out card calculated in the two stage set up?
