DEG Inquiry 14489 provides feedback from Mitchell regarding refinish when the truck bed and cab are refinished in two separate booth cycles.

The system is designed to take overlap based on the assumption the adjacent parts are painted at the same time. If painted in separate booth cycles, Mitchell says the following:

“Major Panel refinish times account for the performance of the 9 included refinish operations as identified in the Mitchell P-pages. In the majority of collision repair scenarios, refinishing operations for major panels are performed conjunctively. In situations outside of this criteria, a time should be agreed upon by all parties that is sufficient to perform the required refinish operations and recorded on the damage report.”
