Then select the size of the dents in millimetres by selecting the correct size from the ones supplied. You will have to count the number of dents on the panel; the system will then automatically calculate the work units required to repair the number of selected dents. You will then be prompted to enter a Dent repair labour rate as well for the calculation to work.
