Does $3000 sound outrageous to you guys? That's for a prime coat and 2 paint coats.

I might be rolling too if I can't find a spray rig : ( The client shouldn't have to pay for a spray rig rental I don't think.

If I had money I would rent it myself but.. times are tight.

Only if you think earning $2500 in a day is too much!

It might take a day and a half. So you would be down to $1500 per day.

I have a feeling that you may be getting in over your head on this.

I've never done a bid without knowing exactly how I would be doing it and a pretty firm idea of the associated expenses. Not saying you should pass but at least get the info you need so you'll know how you'll be doing it. Some time and money spent making a few phone calls would be well invested. Being upside down on the first job you undertake over there wouldn't be a great start and times will get much tighter pretty fast.

It can't be that hard to roll. I am stumped on the conversions so I am not sure if one bloke would roll this amount of sq feet in a day or two days.

Also, spray will be about $170 for a day to hire from a paint shop.
