That is not the hourly rate they personally make it is the same as a garage that charges mechanics labor at the rate of $75.00 a hour. The mechanics probaly make around $35.00 the other money goes to the business for overhead and profit.

Re: Fade to flat black

I just bought the material and a buddy and myself put it on. We were able to pick up the material for around 300 and it took us probably around 20 hours to put it on.

Awesome Effort
There's tons of good videos out there on how to wrap a car...looks like it gets around those tight corners with a little added heat



Try the 3M 1080, I'm waiting on a free sample to check out how thick it feels.
