    First try breaking the job into much smaller chunks, where you can get a better feel for it. You need to look at the big job as a bunch of smaller jobs (you're probably familiar with bidding those).

    When in doubt, price it high. Better to not get it, than to be stuck with a huge job that you lose money on.

    Go with lower case letters next time. Thanks
