More Detail On Estimating Plastic Repair
With the OEM’s issuing more complete position statements regarding if and when a plastic bumper can be repaired, it is becoming more difficult for estimators to determine if a plastic part can be repaired in a profitable manner. Estimating Plastic Repair teaches the estimator how to identify the different types of plastics, the three main methods of plastic repair, and how to apply the OEM repair recommendations and P-page logic to make the best repair vs. replace decision.
