Lightbulb An idea to do something on my weekends!!

Hi everyone.

First thing i wanna say, "Dammit i missed out on heathcote yesterday, women, they have such a influence on me its just a joke". Second

My idea, my dad use to be a profesional cabinet maker, had his own buisness etc. Now, he still like gets all the discount at hardware places. I was thinking about designing door pods, for cars and selling them over the internet (yes FF members get discount if i do). What does anyone think of this idea? I know i could make a pair of high quality pods for under 30 bucks a pair. I seen them in shops for like 120 bucks. I will sell them for like 60 even. Well someone reply to me on this, cose i am seriosuly realy interested in trying this out.

I think its a great idea. But the big question is do u have the time and the resources to set such a business up. U will need to get an ABN and setup other stuff. Still its a good idea.

Re: An idea to do something on my weekends!!

ABNs are easy. You can do it over the net, and get it after a short application. I've got one myself. I say do it, just make sure you have the time and will to go through with such a venture.

Good luck!

Same as the XR but may have a little more overhang and has a SVO logo imprinted into it.

Re: An idea to do something on my weekends!!

sounds like a good idea, if the original outlay isnt too bad then go for it.
more money to spend on the EA.
