Estimated Release Date: Closed Proposed Resolution: MOTOR stated: After review, in the Front Door group, Door & Components subgroup, the estimated refinish time of 3.2 hours applied to the Front Door is appropriate. Please note: An on-the-spot evaluation must be performed and agreed upon by both estimators to apply an estimated work time for the additional prep that needs to be done for ceramic application coated vehicles.

Area of Vehicle: Fender
Issue Summary: Front door is 44" Tall and 30" length. Time to refinish door shell exterior surface is NOT enough time.

Estimated Part Surface Area: square inches
Suggested Action: Increase refinish time with additional consideration of prepping panel with ceramic clear coat vs same size door from another OEM without Ceramic clear coat.
