Vinyl racing stripes cost

I was looking into getting 12 inch racing stripes, bumper to bumper. Called a shop and was quoted $950-1250!! Is that crazy? How much would this job cost?

I got quotes from a place here in phx a. For 600 to do the shelby super snake stripe so 1200 is ridiculous!

I got 2 estimates to put mine in, they ranged from $380-$450. 450 being a Ford dealership. I ended up installing mine along with rocker stripes but it took me 2 days to do it.

Hey I did it myself and they turned out amazing. My first time ever doing them. Start on the todo and use it as a practice section. There is more then enogh extra to fix messed up parts. My only suggestion is that on the bumpers never go around an edge. Cut the stripe and lay a separate peace for every flat section. And for gods sake BUT A HEAT GUN!!!!

I pulled the triger sort of..

I made a choice to buy a cheaper set of stripes to put on myself off Ebay. Two differnt companies for two differnt areas..This will let me know if I really like the color mix. I would hate to go pick the car up after shelling out 500 or more for what I want, just to say that my car looks like p$%p!
I'll take pics and post them once they come in and I get them installed.

Check out Graphic-express.com. That's where I purchased mine. Le Mans style. Great price and 3m quality. Installed with no help (28 pieces). I think I paid less than $300 with shipping. They also stock many custom colors not just the standard black, white and red. Click image for larger version

Thanks for info..

Thanks for the info. I may check them out next.. This is really just a trial run to see if I like the color.
Its really not even the stripe set up i wanted.. i paid like 64$ for everything so if it lasts until Winter im cool for now. Then i can do the real thing when everyone is hurting for auto stuff to do. I know right now they know its getting warm and they are going to get hit with business so they can quote higher.
I used to hang around the body shops... Unless you have alot of winter wrecks or a huge dealership following body shops are SLowwwwwww..
I know one time in Sept I got quoted 950$ to fix a small dent and paint reg white enamel. (Should of been closer to 550-700$) Then got a call in Dec.. I got it all done at the same shop for 400$.. and yes same lifetime warrenty.. They admited they were slower than all get out.. they didnt want to lay anyone off and asked if I had gotten it done yet.
