The system requires the user only to select the damaged portions of the vehicle (left front fender, for example), and all items related to that section of the vehicle are automatically listed, including such items as one-time use fasteners, necessary information labels, and procedures such as color, sand and polish (with a link to Toyota's bulletin indicating that it is a procedure necessary even at the factory).
Rick Leos, Body & Collision Business Development Consultant with Toyota, will present the predictive estimating system Jan. 30 at Brookside Country Club, 1133 Rosemont Ave. in Pasadena.
Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. and meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $45 for CAA members or $100 for non-members.
Please RSVP to CAA Southern California representative Cindy Shillito, at 714-944-4028 or email@example.com.
