Sounds like solid advice to me!!! I would like to see one pic from each side, the underneath, and one really good one of the seat with a tape measure on it. That's 4 plus the makers mark.....so 5 pics. That shouldn't be too many.
I would also say $400 is bare minimum. I wouldn't be shy about setting it at $450 either.....
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
