Here is the deal. Company I work for I no longer feel like I have ANY job security. I figure I'll be unemployed by the first of next year as I think my possistion will be eliminated. There is a Hiring freeze that has been off and on for 2 years and I have not been able to move to a possition with some security. So I have been trying to figure out some stuff I can do and be self employed. The buisness I'm currently in it's not hard to do this and if they pass these Handsfree laws I'll be able to make a decent living /forums/images/icons/smile.gif What I need to do is get some extra cash flowing now so when that day comes I have some reserves while I get that set up. Something I can do on the weekends and evenings. My Bud is a locksmith so I may do some lock out work for him in the evenings. Both these Jobs would leave me some free time durring the day if I do get layed off. What I'm thinking is leading back to the title of the post. I have some very big ideas for my truck including setting it up prerunner style. I need a Tube bender to make it a reality. I have a 75 and a 79 K5 here so I have at my disposal the means to test fit everything from 73-79. While we have several people making bumpers and stuff other that S&W I don't see anybody making cages. I thought about making some prefab roll cage kits I could sell to make me some mad money and build my Reserves (and pay for some new expensive tools). I was thinking of selling simple 6 point cages that come prebent and ready to weld. I mean ready to weld...no trimming and notching like many of the kits available require. It would be totaly designed for the guy with a welder. Complete instruction on how to assemble and install. It would be designed in such a way that all but two of the welds would be done outside the vehicle. The only welding needed to be done in the vehicle on the base kit would be joining the front cage to the the rear cage. The location of that joint would be about 3-4 inches beyond the hard top. Would not interfere with factory belts at all. Might even make that connection a bolt in deal for those that wouldn't want to do any welding inside the truck. That would also mean tha it could be installed without removing any of the interrior. Just pull up the carpet in a few spots. Afternoon install type deal. Also do some extra add on features for set prices like grab handles, Extra cross bars for 4 point belts etc. THe base cage would be a 6 point family style fast back cage like the one I run in my truck. It would be basic with no cross bars I think I could price it in the $300-350 range depending on price of material. THen add on the shipping. Give the option of stepping up to DOM for those that want it for a few bucks more. As I get some sales then I can do some extra stuff like a front kit for making a pre runner dash for instance. Would folks be interested in something like this? For me to do it right I would have to build a set of jigs that would mimic the floor of the truck so I could make sure that every cage is Identical and will fit correctly. Then If somebody wanted to ad on stuff at a later date I could sell in moduals and be sure it would fit. Every cage I produced. Might be able to work with Steve and have it up on OffCamber 4x4 so you could do credit card orders (and Steve could make a few bucks to boot). SO before I lay out $1k for a bender...how many people would be interested in this (plus I have to know to make the sale to the Lady /forums/images/icons/blush.gif )?
