Agreed. And the service/quality seems to be getting worse.I called the shop today and they said it won’t be ready tomorrow. I was a bit shocked. I absolutely have to have it Friday — there’s a drive to do this weekend; they promised I could get it Friday.
It shouldn’t take a week to install a headliner. The whole point of making an appointment weeks in a advance is to have it done at the time of the appointment. It was probably a mistake to let them know I couldn’t pick it up for several days, while I was out of town; it gave them a chance to set it aside and work on other stuff, and now it’ll be getting in the way of new projects coming in the door that were also scheduled weeks ago.
I’m not a fan of this sort of service, but this seems to be the world we live in now. Shops like this are busier than they’ve ever been, and they can work on their own terms.
In a way, the fabric can be the least of it. Wire-on welt, windlace and tack strip all add up, and the cost will depend on what you choose and where you buy it.So $380 for labor, but what was fabric cost? Putting a budget together So know what to expect.
