I would charge around $561 before tax. This includes labor, materials, etc.

Or you could just tell the customer that it could be done for time and material. Just name you labor rate and the cost of material.

If you could get $561 that would be great! I would just charge him your hourly rate plus $100 just for the hassle of a small job.
