no that sounds about right; figure $60 per hour, thats like 6.25 hours...doesnt seem unreasonably long for that amount of work.

Sidenote: Are you in Westchester, Erie or Sullivan counties?

Seems about right... Its not the parts that will kill you..its the labor! For that 375$ you could have bought a nice tool set and a chiltons manual and did it yourself and learned alot. Then you will always have the tools to do more stuff.
