Mask Vehicle to Prevent Overspray Damage

The following refinish information is provided should it be necessary to perform these operations as determined by individual job requirements:

MASK INTERIOR, ENTRYWAYS, ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND TRUNK OPENINGS

Interior masking may be necessary when refinishing exterior surfaces to stop overspray damage that is not prevented by adjacent panel perimeter masking which includes back taping or application of foam tape. Interior masking may also be used when exterior panels (door, hood, etc.) are removed while applying refinish material. The performance of this operation is NOT INCLUDED in the Mitchell refinish labor time.
