What are plastics worth nowadays??

Hey guys..
I have been out of the loop for a bit.. I bought a Complete Prowler 650 plastic kit awhile back that I never put to use. As evoulution has it, I now own a hydrographics shop. So I was thinking of dipping the kit in a monster flame pattern with Carbon fiber around the grill or a real tree camo or a Skull pattern or??? And then putting it up for sale on ebay or the Prowler forums.
So if my memory serves me correct the Camo was worth the most $. But this is an opportunity for something completely custom also. So any ideas? In case you are not familiar with Hydrographics, it is the process that was used to create the camo plastics on UTV's or wood grain dashes on all but the most expensive cars that have actual real wood. There are over 1500 patterns so I have many options.. Any Ideas? The kit is the complete kit with fenders and sides pieces as well as the hood and I also have a xt hood scoop.
Here are a few Ideas I have been kicking around..

sounds like a great Idea,You just need to find someone looking for a custom look for there prowler.I wouldn't mind it myself,but I dont think it would go over to good right now with a daughter in college.as for as just selling the plastic I dont think you would have any trouble,I dont think I ever got to meet you,do you still have your prowler.on your Idea I would kick it around some,and we can spread the word.............mike.

I'm a flame guy , ghost type ... play on you 'puter and see what that looks like .

I have ghost flames on my dually peecup .. main paint is bright grey and flames are fading charcoal [outside edges are heavier fading into mist] . they are front hood and front fenders only.

BUT DO HAVE A QUESTION .... the hood scoop , where did you find it ? .. somehow my factory scoop broke a mount pin [not sure what they call it, but it the piece that goes through the hood to hold it on/in place ] .. not sure if I want to replace it [scoop] or just glue it to the hood as it really doesn't look bad it just isn't tight to the hood / slight gap on the front corner.

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

As for as plastic prices,I think the hood is around 500 dollars,the lower fenders front and back are around 26 dollars a piece.I don't know about the upper bed fenders or the tailgate.
