Labor Estimate - R&R '00 Ford bedside

Hello all, I haven't been around for awhile since I sold my last completed project, but I am doing some side work at home and have a question.

I work at a ski area and am allowed to bid on the bodywork repairs that are required in our fleet of trucks and vans. They usually award me the bid because I am the lowest bidder. Anyway, the most recent damage is to a 2000 Ford pickup, the left bedside is completely destroyed. This is a long box truck. What I am wondering is how many hours would typically be paid to remove and replace the outer bedside skin.

Fwiw, I have done bedsides before, I just don't know what the "going rate" would be for this repair. Thanks for any information you can provide!

3.5 for paint.

Thank you very much, that is exactly what I needed to know.

I am looking into some bidding software. Do you know of any reasonably priced that would work for a small time shop?

Thats if theres no damage to anything else like the bed floor tailgate or the inner bed side...
On a 00 ford it would be cheaper to buy a whole bed from a salvage yard and just replace the whole bed..Not as much fun though...

Good point, luckily on this truck the damage is limited to the bedside.

I know of no software that doesn't cost an arm and a leg! Our's is about $500-$800 a month! I don't remember the exact price but it was something like that. It's crazy!

If you want just times, Mitchell still sells books I think. And they sell out dated ones so you could buy something like Dec 2010 or something like that giving you all up to the 2010 models but the prices of parts will be off a little.

I know we did that a while ago so we could have books out in the parts office. But that was a few years ago and books may be a thing of the past. But this also may be true with CDs, they could have outdated ones to purchase at a discount instead of buying the monthly service.

Bid it for around 14-15 hrs but thier not bad to put on. I did two of them this last spring and you can do it ready to paint in about 6hrs. I'am old and dont like to move that fast so you may do it in less.
