Good that it worked out for you. Sometimes chit happens, whether bad luck or learning curve I find, just part of this work and having your own business. I think one big thing that separates the good from the bad is the fact that those who actually care will recognize when something could be improved upon, and make it so-even when it means lost time and $. Hopefully your customer is happy with everything.

I would put that a little differently..... Do it right, if you phuck it up, fix it. If you can't fix it you shouldn't have attempted to do it in the first place.
