Outstanding! Congrats on finding your short... a good feeling when you find an electrical problem and know its fixed...
As for the shop time, many shops won't touch electrical problems on an older car... they can't be sure of finding it at a reasonable cost (shop rate x hours) and even if they do, most folks (not understanding the expense of running a business) would be outraged to pay 500-600 bucks to connect two little wires back together...
Its even worse if its intermittent... and you give it back to the customer thinking its fixed and its not... then, when it comes back, you get to spend lots more time (for free this time) chasing one of these gremlins...
