i have worked small bsuiness retail and it is a really tough market. javadog made some really valid points, and it was really a struggle to keep business. especially at a store that sold mac and pc. the pc side ended up bringing some steady income, but the mac side was always the cash cow (for those wondering). now if you offered sets where you could choose certain types of mods, then work from there like a template/cookie cutter that may work. you also have to remember that there is a reason why body shops and auto places carry the basics as well. it may not work out too well retail, but as a compliment to the business you would already have in play. a garnish to the dish.
