MTech Full Kit / Paint / Installation Cost

I was told that a particular body shop would charge ~2500 to put on a full M-Tech kit, which sounded reasonable...provided that was the total price (kit included). I come to find out that the price for paint and install alone came out to ~2200, not including the price of the kit.

I feel like I'm getting a raw deal, but at this point, the car is at the shop, the work is done, and I'm responsible for the cost of the kit and paint/installation.

Does this price sound a little high for paint/install? What is the usual amount of hours spent on paint / install (so I can possibly argue the number of labor hours)? Do I have any recourse as far as bringing the price down?
