A recent discussion reminded me how frequently we have threads on pricing professional paint and body work, so, a few minutes ago, I started a wiki article on it: Pricing professional painting
A similar topic of frequent discussion (and contention) inspired a previous wiki article: Cheapo paint job
, so I thought that this one would work out similarly well.
Having the same discussion repeatedly makes inefficient use of our professionals' time, so, hopefully, a wiki article will provide a superior resource, while making the best use of our intellectual resources.
In addition, in the wiki format, unlike in forums, the discussion/debate/argument/smackdown over a subject is done separately from the actual article. To discuss the article, without actually changing it, click the "discussion" tab at the top of the wiki page.
