It gets better. There are 100 of these boxes and covers. 5 coats, 2 hours between first and second coats and sanding initially and then after first coat. The classic line was
Each Junction Box set should take about 5 minutes actual labour time (not including drying time) to complete. So 100 x ~5 minutes = ~500 minutes total (about one day’s work – I hope you have some spare time available?)




are they saying 5 coats in 5 minutes??? or 500 minutes to spray one coat???


i think id keep these guys goin with some crazy email replies. throw in something like i have a flux capacitatin dryin machine that will make the finish as hard as powder coating. used it on some tin foil tophats and they came out great!

So the setup time for 200 items to be painted inside and out, as well as the time between coats we get to do for free?


:shocked: They thought this out? :rotfl:
I would shoot them back a Grossly overpriced bid that ensures 1000% profit With a grossly over exaggerated estimate for materials and state you only use X type materials from these X Brands period due to local codes and Shop Liability.
