Here's something else that hit me hard the other day too.

My grandmother had a little bang-up in her 2002 Neon and she needs a new rear quarter,left rear door,etc.She let me look at the quote sheet from the body shop and I was startled at their prices.

Body Labor @ $35.00 per hour.
Paint Labor @ $30.00 per hour.

Those wages do not include materials.That's just what they pull in off of the job.The total bill was close to $2,000 and it was mostly the labor.I think that it was like $1,300 or so.I'll have to look again to be sure.

I think that if I get that guy that I was talking about to paint my truck,that would be a good deal,especially after seeing those prices.
