$1500 isn't enough for the work + timeline. He's screwed.

That sucks. Given two, maybe three, full days I could complete that project. Unfortunately I am booked solid all day tomorrow, which would give me only Saturday to work on it. And that just isn't enough.

This project sounds like aticking time-bomb, though. I have had cleanup calls in the past, and at least 50% of the time I end up getting screwed. You are going into an environment where the client barely knows what they want, the documentation is usually shabby, and it's often a lot easier to just rewrite all the code than it is to try to work with the mess left behind by the previous coder. I wish this guy the best of luck, he's going to need it.
