Hi I am just reading this now
Once a quote has been submitted and accepted, there is a binding contract. If he has now cancelled the contract, you are entitled to sue him for the breach of the contract and your damages will include the cost of the product, your time in preparing the product and researching the issue, and your lost profit on the job. I wasn't sure if this was a construction contract, but if it was then you should lodge a payment claim and send to him. This will give you a considerable advantage in that he will need to respond with a schedule, and if he does not you will have the advantages of the remedies under the Construction Contracts Act.
