Powder coating opportunity

I just wanted to get some feedback from you all. I have a friend that has all the equipment and to start up a powder coating business I would start out slow and maybe do some things local then possibly do some stuff that I could ship to folks. I am thinking that the price is to good to pass up I already bought his enormous compressor from him. So that's it what do you all think. Would this be something that you would have done to your jeep parts if the price was right or do you think it would be a deal breaker with shipping costs thx.

shipping would kill it probably but look at the competition in your area. if your the only one for 100 miles then you will probably do pretty good.

also why is he selling? not enough market for him?

He was forced to shut it down he was running it out of his garage and Teton county is pretty strict about running it out of your home the closest powder coater is about 80 miles away in Idaho. i am thinking this would only be a part time thing since i have a very good job that pays well maybe make enough to buy new parts for the jeep hahahaha
