Sounds like your pants are already around your ankles as far as price goes. Best advice here might be to let him have his friend do it. You can't make money on the job @ $500 and you will only be letting the client know how cheap you'll work if you did do the job! Plus, if you lower your price to match his it will send a signal that you were over charging him in the first place. You're better off using the time you'd spend on this looking for a new client. Sometimes it's best to bow out gracefully, don't throw it in his face that his friend doesn't know what he's doing. Let the client know what you are offering him... a professional job. Give him the facts & figures and let him decide. It's best not to disparige the competition... sell your strengths. His friend may have good intentions but if he's not a pro it will show in the end and your client will be back.
