Thanks very much for your interest.
for example last year I went to my jeep dealer for a recall,
there was a well known issue with the emergency brake pedal. When the job was done I received a document with the invoice on
which the problem was described, how to replace step-by-step, part number and exact timing. I mean, every part has a code and a
timing. On professionals programs every part is catalogued and labeled, with cost, number, and time. My problem is i'm not in the
us and here in italy my car is not an ordinary car, so mechanics and other have few infos, and the less for an almost 20 year old
vehicle. For commercial vechicles and other cars this timings are present (maybe i'll use one for a similar car).
I wonder what is the this time for the frame, as the manuals consider the frame like others parts.
(i see many sell it for restauration pourposes too).
I know it's a crazy request, and nobody sane mechanic, professional nor bodyshop will afford a job so long and expensive.
I need this info for a simple reason, I had a road accident.
And I need to estimate repair costs for have the insurance refund.
Here somebody tells that this time is around 15/20 hours, one hour ago I was called by and official repair shop which
told me almost 50, but nothing precise or formal.
I know it's not properly the same but last year I stripped down a cj3 in my garage with few tools and in about 3 days ( 20h),
but unfortunately i'm not and expert, only an enthusiast and obviously this is not enought for an insurance company ;)
