By that i simply mean the whole flip a righty to play lefty, I was just wondering how much work would be involved? my friend wants to learn how to play bass, but he has hardly any money, so i figure he's better off trying to get a cheap used righty cuz they'll be easier to find and I'll flip it for him, and i jut want to make sure i've got all this right. all i really need to do is re-place the strap buttons and flip the nut correct?

Only issue with a bass will be the balance issues. Im a lefty and looked at doing it to. But the neck on a bass is much longer and with the strap button on the lower horn it has really really bad headstock dive. There are not so expensive lefty basses out there. I bought one of those rogue ones to noodle around on occasionally. And so I will have a bass if the need does arise.
