Can I file a Mechanics Lien for an amount greater than the pre-lien?

CaliforniaMechanics LienPreliminary Notice

I am a building materials supplier. I sent a pre-lien for $110k on 7/18/22. The job is done, but I didn't realize how much was charged on their account. I have a balance of $243k that is past due. Am I able to file a mechanics lien for the entire amount? The last job was shipped on 11/8/22 for the amount of $108k.

Yes, Scott, you ca record a lien in an amount that exceeds the estimated value in your preliminary notice. Your materials were all furnished to the same project that was identified in your preliminary notice, right?
