I say just take what he offers and consider this as a lesson for future business.
The lesson learned is the general practice of providing a cost estimate in writing
prior to doing the work. Even if you can't provide an exact amount you can always
provide a min and max range. If you get intot he job and dscover you can't do the
job for the price you estimated, you simple call the customer and renegotiate the
fee before completing the job.
