    Some good some bad then mate. Happens that way doesn't it. Hppefully you'll get the jobs & cover the cost of the tyres!

    All the best with quoting the big job. I've had to do a few of these lately, and felt way out of my league..I'm just a sole trader that does mostly houses..but I went in (one wearing uniform, one more smart as was a nice hotel), had my printed business cards, I was friendly, and promoted my good points, like insurance, licence etc...and ended up getting them both!
