Default Would anyone be interested?

I have a small business starting up and I'm deciding on what all additional services we will offer. It is a car customization shop. Mainly we will do body kits, bolt ons, custom tuning, appearance mods (black out lights), custom audio systems, and like such things. Additionally we will be trying to make custom pieces on request.

The reason for the thread though, is wondering about custom airbrushing. Everybody tends to like it, but typically it is expensive as h*ll. So we would be offering custom airbrushing for relatively cheap. Looking at things like, badges, various engine covers, radiator covers, etc. Would this be something you guys would be interested in? It would be starting up in the middle of next month. Thanks!





(had to throw these guys in...they looked so happy)

Nice business. I'd love to do that.

Air brushing is very common on motorcycles. Might want to consider painting them as well.

Cheap custom airbrushing?
You will be over run with customers if you are any good.

It'll be early January before I can get any show items. I'll likely give out a few freebees to get the name out... You pay for shipping and the item and get free paint. I'll post a new thread when the time comes.

Another quick question I have is what do you consider as good pricing....we'll say for a radiator cover? There's only shop in my area that does custom airbrush work, and they wanted $3500+ for a custom painted rad cover...I personally think that is ludicris...and would not pay it or charge it. But what do you guys think would be an approrpiate pricing for a fully custom painted radiator cover? (price including rad cover and paint) thanks!

i think this is fair

but if you were to be able to go lower, then as said before you would have a VERY long line of customers, myself included. maybe not even have it customed, but just a ford color, say g9, painted would be nice, i think the one from midwest is like $160 and that is a decent price for basic paint work if you thought about going that direction too
