Almost made a huge mistake shingling a low slope roof! What materials should I use?

I was able to get the cap sheet for $43/square in this store, but other places quoted over $80 (similar differences in the base sheet).

I will only do 2-ply with MA base and the cap sheet.
Can someone please translate this back down into layman's terms ?

I have a similar repair I need to do. I'm considering rubber roofing as well.

Go to GAF's web site and download their install directions. You wouldnt make a cake without reading the box would you?

Liberty is Modified Bitumen, not rubber. "Rubber" in roof speak is EPDM.
