Provided you are certain you have asked for all the information you need, your text seems basically fine to me, apart from minor misspellings ('selant' and 'concering'), the lack of gaps between words in '$18.90($14.95sealant', and writing 'Paypal' as 'paypal'.

On the other hand, I'm unclear as to what you mean by 'detailing'. Do you mean "If you require any further details please ask me"?

Congratulations, Erik. Just what are you intending to do with all this inexpensive sealant? Hope this is not a variation of a Poe wine cellar plan! Think I might suggest to Kerri that she email me daily with a codeword as to her health! *G*

She won't if she adopts your slogan from a former life, 'Seal my lips!'.
