When i get asked to produce a peice of work there are two ways i can play it. Hourly rate or total cost ie quote! Estamates in UK law are really guestamates as in "I think it will cost you this much" but if the job takes longer or the customer changes their mind you rase the price. What im asking is what are your startagies on;

1) Breaking a job down and quoting

2) Dealing with client appoval if they keep changing the brief
