I have been wanting to work on the golf cart for a while now to make better use of it at shows. It gets to be tiresome lugging all the camera gear all the time even when riding on a tractor to get around. I also wanted to be able to use it for the plow days and getting through the fields. The other thing I wanted was a back seat so we could fit more of the family on it. Although I still think a 2nd cart might be in the future but for now it is hard to say.

 

For those that never seen the golf cart here are a couple pics of how it used to look. Huge thanks to Don aka Truck21 for getting us a great deal on the cart. 

 

This is a pic with the little one sitting on it:

This is a pic of us hauling all of Brian's stuff from the auction late Saturday night at last years Olde Tyme Days show, not needed but funny :D

I ended up buying a lift kit, wheels and tires and also a rear flip down seat kit. I tried to spend as little as possible as I didn't want to make a huge investment in it. I also got some base coat / clear coat paint which I am sure I am bound to here some comments but I gotta blame my daughter because she picked the color. That's my story and I am sticking to it :D

 

Here are a couple pics of what it looks like now. I have some wet sanding and polishing to do because I have a couple of runs in the clear coat. It's been so long since I sprayed and the lighting in the garage wasn't the best. Overall I guess it turned out pretty decent and there are still some more things I would like to get done through the course of this year. I gotta get back to work on the Bush Hog though.

Gas or Electric

 

It's a gasser. I had the driven clutch machined to get back some of the torque lost from the bigger tires. It tops around 20 mph right now according to the gps. I am thinking about doing some sort of Honda clone engine or possible a diesel and putting a turbo on it.

It will eventually. I was thinking about getting another decal made up but I might try airbrushing it on. Just got to get some more clear coat and pick some colors to do it in.

The only thing that sucks about the extra traction and ground clearance is I can't do the power slides coming down the one hill anymore. I think it would probably flip LOL.

I would love to get to more shows this year but I don't know if the budget is going to allow it. Might have to see what we can do.
