Body Part Grading

The ARA Damage Codes are arranged with 3 digits:

The first digit is a number used to identify the area where the damage is located on the part. Reference the ARA Quality Part Identifier sheet and see how the different part types are divided into sections. The section with the damage will be the first number of the code. Location 0 = The entire panel.

The second digit is a letter identifies the type of damage. See the ARA Quality Part Identifier sheet for the various types of damage (green block).

The third digit is a number to recognize the damage’s size. The size of the damage is identifiable with the size of a credit card. One “UNIT” of damage should not exceed the surface area of a credit card.

DOOR EXAMPLES:

5D1 in the description = Center of the door will have a dent that would be covered by a credit card.

5P.5 = Center of the door will have 1 or 2 dings equating to the surface area of ½ of a credit card.

000 = should have no damage and will be identified as ZERO to the left on CCC description.

SHEET METAL BODY PARTS Grading is based on any necessary repair time required to make the panel “Clean and Undamaged”. Damage is represented by unit amounts. A unit, (which is defined by a whole number) represents damage that can be covered by a credit card-sized object.

Example: A front-end assembly with a crease in the hood (6C1) and dented fender (5D2).

B = Grade Body Parts “B” grade parts are greater than 1 unit and 2 units or less of repair necessary. Example: A roof with hail damaged (5H2). An entire front end or rear body sheet metal assembly that is “B” grade will have 6 units or less (but more than 3 units) of total repair necessary on the entire assembly. Example: A front-end assembly with collision damage (6E4) on the bumper and rust (7R2) on the fender.
