I bought a viper decal full set for car , boot, bonnet etc

decided not to tackle this myself but get local bodyshop to do it, took them in to get a rough price etc and he quoted a probable 3hr job at £30 an hour.

So I thought okay , now it looks like double this time :aargh: and he said its a nightmare

Is this usual and not a rip off,?

Not sure of bill total yet but got me worried as its supposed to be around 12.30 to collect and now after i phoned he is saying it will probably be ready at 3 pm ish..:confused:
Will this now be doubled....:frown:

if u got a written quotation (not estimate) it should stay the same price, but if you got an estimate or verbal estimate i would say it is going to cost more.

Any customisation that you do should make you grin like an idiot whenever you see it... at least that approach works for me!

It took me about 6 weeks to really decide what pattern I wanted to do, and once my local shop did the fitment, I was very happy. It sounds to me that you are having second thoughts; I'd leave them on for about 3-4 weeks and decide then. Some of the comments you get might help you sort out what to do in then end.

For me, I think the colour combo is very fetching :)
Good luck with your decision!
