What is a fair price for a full vinyl wrap?

I am planning to get a full wrap using Avery Dark blue Metallic. I am also going to wrap the roof, grill, nismo ducts, and rear lip (part of it) in 3m gloss black.

Any ideas what labour and or materials is going to cost? I want to be able to recognize if Im being ripped off.

I guess Im more interested in the normal price of labour because the material cost shouldnt change.

Thanks!

Materials has gone up in the past few years cause 2 yrs ago I've would of paid less then $500 for the same materials. BTW your gonna use 25 yards of the base color and 6-7 of the black. good luck

based on the usual car modification prices of $800 for an hour of dyno tuning, $10K for a turbo kit that will blow your engine or fail itself after 20K miles, $3000 for wheels, $2500 for brakes, then I'd guess $2500 labor for a wrap, $800 material +20% mark-up on material (or overhead/profit).
This is based on everyone's time being worth $150/hr

I'm guessing one reason for a variance in quotes is how many body parts are removed vs just seamed.

I'm in the process of doing mine and pulled out the headlights last night which added a couple hours of labor by the time I jacked it up, removed wheel liners, and front bumper cover.

Made me really question wether I should have just cut and tucked edges in......

Dreading doors as just read that you have to remove windows to get exterior handles off. Dang ......

Depends on who's doing the job but I've seen between $1,000-$2,000 I'd say.
