AudaEnterprise automatically generates an additional 5WU for door skins over and above the door paint allowance - this is required for edging, plus an additional 3WU for door skin seam sealer application on Alfa Romeo and Fiat models only (as these manufacturers do not include seam sealing as part of their labour operation).
Paint materials remain the same, i.e., as for new door panel painting
Bonding kits should be treated as outside the generated sundries allowance and should be priced separately, as agreed with individual work providers.
Porsche and Mercedes operate their own paint labour and are therefore excluded from allowances for door skin refinish and any additional uplifts relating to this operation.
Update: VW Golf V and Golf Plus have bolt-on door skins and are therefore now excluded from the additional 5WU allowance.
These allowances were agreed following extensive research initiatives, and in association with our Advisory Board. They apply to the preparation and painting of full and half door skins, taking into account the differences of both and the market mix.
