I was looking to get into a side business with the Raptor UPol kits they sell on ebay...I've heard good things about them. And $110 for everything you need to do a bed with gun.

And yes, plasti kote is the best I've seen out of a can...I've used them all lol

Business is so so. the vortex material is awesome. But it a good chunk of change to invest. I bought the system cause there was a custom truck truck shop in town wanting to do them in house. My brother in law was a sales guy there so after we talked with the owner we agreed to a deal. they would offer them for sale, I could use their shop and they get 20% of ones they sell for me, and 10% of each one I do that i sold myself as rent.

So basically, I got a shop space for a great price and they got to offer another product to their customers. So I bought the system...$15,000 and went for training, got back got all setup over a weekend........3 days later they dropped a bomb on everybody when the owner showed up and locked the doors for good! He owed over hundred grand in employee witholding taxes!

So for the last 2 years I have been working out of my garage, havent really advertised it much either cause I cant fit a whole truck in my tiny garage.

I think if you had the space and some advertising it would go great, Ive just been too busty with construction to really push it ya know.
