Space - First you will need to decide where you are gonna set up shop. Here's some ideas. You could set up a stand at a local car wash,or set up on an empty lot near the side of a busy street. You can use your vehicle as a place of business or you can bring a portable table with you. Either of these will work good.

Materials - You will need a well made sign .The sign should be large enough to be read from a distance. You will of coarse need a descent repair kit as well. Here is a link to find some descent repair kits.

Price of repair - The average charge for a repair is around $40-$50 depending on how big the repair is. As far as payment goes, you can take cash or you can take payments from peoples car insurance companies. Although this requires a business license,it can be well worth it! Most companies will pay you $50 per repair(one repair is equal to one crack or one chip)!

There is quit a bit of information to explain when it comes to identifying and properly repairing a windshield, so I will not go into detail here. A good source of education on this subject is youtube. There are plenty of instructional videos there that can help you understand different methods of repair. Also some repair kits come with instructional videos .

You will need to practice once you get a good grasp of the concept. A good way to do this is to use your friends and families cars for practice. They'll appreciate it and you'll gain some experience. At first start with the smaller repairs like rock chips and later on advance to cracks which are usually a little trickier to fix. Once you learn these skills, you will not regret it . This is a fast and easy money maker!
