That one is sort of funny to me.

I once took a Vair for 4 wheel alignment to Firestone.  Had made sure 
everything turned as it should before hand.  They agreed to do the work, but 
not at the flat rate, they would charge for the time required instead.  I 
had all the specs with me and "oversaw" the work.  I ended up paying (don't 
recall for certain $10 - maybe $15) LESS than their standard "book" rate. 
Grinned all the way home.

So, while I did not personally align the car, I came away from the 
experience with a satisfaction similar to DIY.

Later, JR
