I think if someone casually says I'll pay you to do it they really  
have no idea of the time commitment and are unlikely prepared to pay  
for the true value.  If I were to guess they were thinking I can buy  
a Hollywood produced DVD for $25.00 so our buddy Trueman should be  
happy with $10.  You propose that you want $500 they will feel that  
you are trying to take advantage of them, if you value their  
friendship I would either find an excuse not to do it or do it as a  
favour for free.  Monetary transactions with friends should be  
avoided like the plague.
