    Cost to Have a Pinball shop Redecal a Cab?

    Hi all, was looking at a widebody pinball i'm interested in. The machine is at a resellers business and it comes with new decals. When i asked if they could put the decals on for me they said it would cost $2,000 to apply them.

    Does this seem at all reasonable just to fit the decals that come with the machine??

    Unless they are sanding, filling, prepping and using automotive quality paints and top quality decals, with a high degree of workmanship and care, finished to a Hot Rodded Pins level...then expensive but reasonable.

    As this is most likely not going to be the case, then no. You may not want nor care for this level of finish and as such, you can attempt to put them on yourself and buy a nice EM as a reward with the savings.

    Possibly but It could be but it could also be the “I have to pay someone 1500 to do it and I want a cut” price

    20 hours work @ $40 an hour? Would sound about fair to me, but **** I have seen a range of results from redecals, you really do need to have attention to detail to get it right
    its very easy to **** up, a lot of potential issues.
