Yep, been there. I got tangled up in a project like that a while ago.
Ended up underbidding 30% and producing 40% above spec. Ended up
putting all their things on the long run and thus took me a year to
complete. I can tell you, that ain't fun.

And as muinar said, I could've felt it coming at the first meeting.
Does teach you quite a lot though ... :)
