Default Going rate to paint flares

Just so I have an idea what it costs, I was wondering what others with painted flares were charged.

I'm a painter at a Dodge dealership body shop and I think we charge around one hour per flare give or take a few tenths at $40 per hour so you'd probably be looking anywhere between $100-$200 labor and rule of thumb for materials is half the labor cost so about $50-$100 additional for materials for all four flares at your local body shop.

Please pardon the dirty truck:



I've also since removed the rear 4x4 and Laramie badges.

Thanks for the feedback. I actually found a painter that deals with my workplace and had them painted for $150 cash. I have the Bushwacker Pocket Style. I'll post pics tonight after I install them.
