try reading closely!
Don't think I said that it took 3-4 hrs but that that is the hours CHARGED. You have to pay for those $$$$ tools & that is the time that MB says a job should take. TRY taking life a bit easier as we are trying to help(you are way too serious)!! Most DIYER's should leave this to the pros. This is a help forum, not a chest beater on who can do what!
