KCTCS Course Title
This lesson will instruct students on how to identify type and color code by checking the manufacturer’s vehicle information label. Knowledge of this operation and the skills required to correct problems associated with this task are necessary for a student to acquire if they wish to compete for high paying, high skilled jobs in an auto body repair facility. Entry level technicians need to be able to perform this task to 100% accuracy. Incorrectly performing this task can lead to customer satisfaction issues, and cost both the shop and technician time and money.
Identify color code by manufacturer’s vehicle information label.
Given the proper tools and instructions from a vehicle manufacturers shop manual or automotive computer software program, students will be able to identify type and color code by manufacturer’s vehicle information label, and pass a written exam on the task with 100% by the end of the course.
Instruct students that the paint code is also an alphanumeric code that states what type and color of paint was used during vehicle manufacturing. Explain that the body ID number, or service part label, gives information about the finish (paint) and the trim or moldings used on a specific vehicle. It also gives numbers for ordering the right type and color of paint, including the lower and upper body colors for a two-tone paint job. Tell students that the body ID number will be on the body ID plate in various locations on the vehicle.
Teach students to become familiar with each vehicle manufacturer's method of vehicle identification and the specific information it contains. Tell them to remember that they should obtain all of the information possible about the vehicle being worked on to ensure quality repairs.
Instruct students to note that there are frequent "running changes" made by the vehicle manufacturers. Explain that vehicles built in the same model year can have one or several individual part changes that affect repair. Inform students that the manufacturer or aftermarket publisher will usually note midyear changes in its service materials.
With the help of the color retrieval manual, have students locate the manufacturer’s color code on the vehicle. Tell students to list the vehicle manufacturer’s color code. Then have students convert the manufacturer’s code into the paint maker’s color code to obtain the proper color mix for the vehicle. Have the students list the paint maker’s paint code for the vehicle.
Evaluation and feedback Prior to Testing or Lab Work
Objective 1/ Formative assessment / Instructor will observe students as they practice the procedure to assure correct procedure and safety practices are being followed. A checklist should be utilized to chart student progress on the task. Questioning techniques will be utilized as necessary to demonstrate student comprehension / Adaptations and/or accommodations for special needs students will be added if required.
STUDENT ASSESSMENT: (Assess student progress with performance criteria.)
Objective 1/ Summative assessment / written test questions on stated objective / adaptation and / or accommodations for special needs students will be added if required.
IMPACT--Reflection/Analysis of Teaching and Learning: (How did students progress in relation to the state objectives? Was the instruction successful? Analyze samples of student work, particularly that which is unsatisfactory, for the purpose of planning further instruction.)
REFINEMENT--Lesson Extension and Follow-up: (To be filled in as the lesson is modified during initial planning and/or during the teaching learning process.)
