D-numbers - Collision Estimating Guide
#1
I wasn't sure where to post this information but while going through some old paperwork, I came across these Collision Estimating Guide sheets. They're a great reference tool for finding out the correst D numbers for that part that you are either looking for or selling.

I wouldn't use the price numbers for anything due to the age of the document but they are good for comparison.

For all that this site has given me in just that past few weeks, I thought I should give something back.

Hope this helps.

What is great about this is the labor (Labour for the Canadians) units assigned to each task. While a bit light from reality, they could be extremely helpful if you are on the short side of a insurance claim on your Mustang. You can always pull this out of your back pocket if the insurance company is short changing you. My strategy would be to do a line by line review of the estimate comparing the labor units, then use this if it is going to help.

If you using this for an insurance claim--understand all refinish times are for "new, undamaged panels". This means if there is any body work, priming and blocking is an additional charge. Additionally, if there is old paint, featheredging, stripping, removing stripes, etc are all extra.

Any idea which estimating guide this is from and if the procedure pages (p-pages) are available as well? Awesome share!

Great additional information regarding the labor (aka labour) rate issue. However, as I research (aka go through the cr*p) in my home office and come across stuff, I most likely will not know where this came from. This is the case with this piece of info.

No problem. Simply having the info, even without the "reference source" is a lot better than not having it at all. Again, thanks for sharing it, and please keep it up! Smile
