Shop time can vary, perform the job and charge something reasonable to your customer or friend.

I want to know what Mitchell Shop Time is because I know this guy will challenge me on my charges & I want to be able to justify what I am going to charge him & show him what a shop does to figure out their time. I am only charging $65 an hour not what a shop does ( approx $125 to $140/ hr)

Labor is estimated at $246-$314. This is from one site I use, not the Mitchell shop time. Parts were listed as $118-$190. Use this as reference.

At what rate is this because it varies State to State.......& what were the hours to do the job ? That would be 4.5 hrs at $65/ hr. New Jersey rates vary from $119/hr to $135/ hr, I'm only charging 1/2 the labor rate cause I don't have the Over-head a Shop has.

Sorry, I can't help you any further. I don't have hours to complete. I know some heater cores jobs you have to rip the whole dash out and it takes a whole day to complete. You charging 1/2 the labor rate is a fair deal and if your customer doesn't appreciate that you shouldn't be working on their car.
