Need a good exhaust installer and a powdercoating place

so i have exhaust coming as soon as the next batch of them is fabricated and i am looking for a place to get it installed.

i know i recommend speedware to a lot of people on this site, but after the email price quote i just received from them to install my BOLT ON CAT BACK exhaust, i wanted to laugh at their faces personally. $375 FOR INSTALLATION

since i know this is not a labor intensive job, can someone recommend me a place to get it installed where i wont be charged that much for something that should take less than an hour?

also, i would like to get the tips powdercoated OEM shadowline, so I need a recommendation of a place for powdercoating as well!

THANKS GUYS!

i can talk to my uncle (he owns a shop) and they can do the install for you at a fraction of that price. they stand behind their work and they are very knowledgeable. let me know if you want me to do that. i can come with you also.

haha btw what exhaust did you get?

For powdercoating I would recommend Powdercoating Inc. They did an awesome job and they were really nice.
