I'm new to this also so go easy on me. 1 st question is did she accept your proposal. 2 nd is did she tell you what she paid the last lco. I keep getting the old "come back in two weeks and cut it real low". This is getting real old real quick.

Sounds fine, but I would charge $150 for it. How much time will it take you?
