Please help fill my truck...

Hi - Being in a fairly small town but with a lot of ambitious film people I'm considering operating as a small production company. There are no rental houses in the area and I want to help people realize their creative abilities a step up from the rest so I want help filling my truck. This is what I have, I want to modify, add, fill the gaps, so as to be fairly well rounded. This is primarily low budget filmmaking. Some Flourescents are on their way.

Chevy P-30 Production truck with generator
Arri (2) 650's, (2) 300's, (2) 150's (Fresnels & all accessories)
Desisti 1k Fresnel
Lowel Softlite's (1) 2k, (2) 1500's
Two 750w softboxes
Two Bardwell 1k broads
One strand 1250w broad
--- I know, I know, too much fill
Britek 300w broad
(1) 100w fresnel (off brand)
(12) stands, (2) heavy duty
(3) boom stands
(4) c-stands with arms (need more)
Several Matthews flags (all blockers)
Magicam IIa stabilizer w/ monitor
Kessler 12 ft crane w/ monitor
Sennheiser MKH-416 mic w/ blimp and boom pole
Crown wired lav
(5) Sony MDR-7506 headphones
(5) CAD condenser mic's
(3) field mixers
Bescor battery pack
Bescor on camera light
(50) XLR cables
(50) Stingers
(4) 100 ft super high guage stingers
Equipment carts
Miles of misc cabling

Variety of color gels and black rap

Keith - I have to be honest, it sits in a room full of the others and well, it blows, want to return it, it's spot to flood is well, ridiculous, and I even see dark spots in the array on a white wall, this will be donated to a local high school, the second shift janitor will love it..

Thanks for the brutal honesty. I was considering getting a few. I figured if I hated my $1,000 Lowel kit, at half the price, these couldn't be much worse. If nothing else, better priced.
