I sent flarespace an email a few days ago and have yet to hear anything.
Has anyone had any success in reaching them?

Ed -

I had this response to my info request:

Greg, thank you for your interest in Flarespace! We are currently 14 days out from shipping our pre-ordered parts. The shipping for one set will be $270.- w/ UPS Ground delivery. A set of flares retails for $1,990.- which includes the installation kit. We would need the contact info of your preferred body shop as these parts require professional installation and HAVE to be painted before install. The body shop or van conversion company then receives the parts and installation instructions from us. Figure ~400.- for paint and 4-6 hours for install depending on the shop. Please note that the flares fit 2007 and newer high and low top Sprinter vans only.
You would be the first van in Colorado!

If you have any questions, please call me 970.403.5273
Thank you,
Sonja Taylor

Greg: I wonder if we can find someone local who'd give us a deal on installation?

We could get a discount on shipping


...interesting her phone number is "970" areacode... that's Colorado

As you can see on our website, the flares are tapered. Towards the front, you have 78" across and 82" at the rear doors. Depending on your choice of interior finish, the length will be reduced 1/4"- 1". So a person that is 6'3" will definitely fit comfortably with a pillow. Hope this answered your question.

Thanks!

The 970 may be a mistake, 971 is an area code for the soggy side of Oregon. But, there was a quote for UPS shipping, but shipping is also claimed to be included in the price.

With google voice area codes are pretty much meaningless anymore... I think their area code is 970.

I'm curious if it's $400-600 for paint, what are the labor costs per hour people are seeing? I was quoted $100hr in Southern California and that feels high for something that is essentially a DIY skillset done by someone with more time on there hands than myself. So, just because someone else has more time on there hands than me they can charge $100hr? The Sprinter labor rates are feeling like a Porsche tax.

pele,

This has nothing to do with "Sprinter labor rates" unless you're dealing with a Mercedes Sprinter dealer. If its a DIY job, just find a $30 or $40 an hour handyman and turn him loose on your $50K van.

I suggest you find a skilled craftsman and check their references so you know the job will be done correctly. This is too large of an investment to trust to just anyone. Its your van and hopefully you'll live with it, enjoy it and use it for a long time. You don't want poor workmanship.
