Section3_IssueSummary
IS THE TIME TO FORMULATE A COLOR INCLUDED IN PAINT TIME? WHAT I MEAN IS THAT SHOPS THAT HAVE MIXING SYSTEMS INHOUSE, THE TIME TO WEIGH OUT ALL NECESSARY TONES TO CREATE A FACTORY COLOR......INCLUDED OR NOT?

Section3_SuggestedAction
WEIGHING AND MIXING OF TONES TO CREATE A PAINT COLOR, OR FACTORY PACK COLOR, IS NOT INCLUDED AND REQUIRES TIME OF .8 HRS TO CREATE WHAT IS CALLED A FACTORY PACK COLOR
 
IP Explanation
The Audatex refinish allowance accounts for mixing the color for the factory paint code and one tint cycle to match the paint on the vehicle. These allowances are accounted for in the base refinish time not the refinish setup allowance.

If a custom color is applied to a vehicle this is not accounted for in the Audatex refinish allowance per Section 4-5 Refinish Operations of the Database Reference Manual
