    I echo exactly what JRS says.

    And then figure out a PITA fee if there is one, a degree of difficulty, excess drivetime, gas to and from site.

    That list looks like me and two guys could install that in a day if we booked it.

    Not a bad job if you ask me.

    Where is the job, got a contact name and number for the gas station:)?
