Holy shiat bro! That's by far the best canopy I've seen yet!

She should consider making money painting them for others!

I'd LOVE to be her first customer!....for err....the canopy of course

Yes it would be nice to sell custom canopies... However, price might be a problem. I wonder how much someone would be willing to pay for a custom canopy vs the number of hours it takes to paint one ( 15-20 hours for this one, plus paint, clearcoat, etc...)


Once again, thank you for the comments!

Once she has lots of "practice" I am sure she could do more than 1 at a time, each at the same stage of paint so that in the end there are 10 canopies all painted up in the same 10-15 hours. $50-$60 seems to be a good price for a painted 450 canopy. sell 10 at a time thats $600 / 10 hours = $60/hour labor which in my book is pretty dang good money. wish I could paint that well, mine suck.
