Re: Should Odvious start a side business for Hoods?

Your best bet for manufacture is to find a company that could produce the hood from your mold, maintaining the rights to the hood for yourself as well as keeping quality control in your hands.

You could also lower production costs by preselling x amount of hoods and working out a deal with the manufacturer by the amount of production you do.

Good luck to you sir, you've got some serious talent to do that all by hand.

Re: Should Odvious start a side business for Hoods?

I like the hood, and it would save me the money of having to go to the body shop to have a set of Z34 louvers molded into my stocker (which is what I was planning on).

Wow I don't know who pissed in your cherios buddy, but I guess I definately won't be running anything by you from the looks of how you throw your two cents in with some venom there co-owner. I think we all aren't naive to the fact that taking on such a feat would be involved. However I think that if someone has the talent like he does then a friendly poll is harmless to feel out if the situation might warrant more than a mere thank you to eveyone that's being excited about it from Chad. Based on his thread he seems really humble and of course he has stated that this is more of a labor of love than anything else at the moment. I think it's cool stuff and it's my opinion that someone identified as a co-owner beside their avatar shouldn't fly off the handleover something harmless and tell people to "stay the fawk out of it!" So Chad good job. But since the thought of people giving you props to maybe push for something more than a thread from everyone seems to offend a member of the brass on here, I guess I'll just PM you if I got anything in relation to your cool talents bro.
