Figure my labor rate is $45/hr..... which is cheap for my profession. It would take me several hours to make that piece perfect. So as long as his piece has no imperfections, no slight waves and no sand marks, then it is worth it in my mind. However, a lot of people on here don't want to pay for perfection nor would appreciate it. I actually ask my customers to what degree of perfection they want. Lets say 85% of perfection takes 2 hours..... then 100% may take 10 hours. Your average customer can't tell the difference between 85% and 100%. Then you have anal freaks like me! Must be 110%
I'm the exact same way...
To keep selling price down I think I'm going to do this on my own without MVP. I have already spoken to the body shop who made mine and he stated he could make them for me 1 at a time if need be so no min buy in. Selling price would be $215 shipped painted any color you want or $195 shipped ready to paint. You would need to ship me your factory piece and turn around time would be 1.5-2.weeks as each one would be hand made to order. Also for you 60mm guys he said he could hook you up as well, same price you will just need to send 1 gauge so they can get the proper sizing(only applies to 1st order for 60mm).
