If you consider shop time at ~C$60/hour then IMO it's a bit high but not outrageous.

Wheels, brakes removed, fork has to be taken out from bike, washed, dried and cleaned with alcohol to remove 100% of grease. Time taken to apply wrap perfectly and then put everything back together.

and at the current market rate C$100 is about US$80

Shop employee crumples up work order and heads to cash register...

"That'll be...uhhh...a hundred dollars, sir."

for a fork, too much. for an entire frame, not enough. a tailored ridewrap kit is a PITA to install, if you are meticulous about it. i've done three now, and it's 4-5 hours if if i'm careful about it. maybe i'm slow.
