Last week been working on my Golf Cart Butt Buggy for shows. It is old Yamaha and hard to find accessories for it, too old of model. SO, I decided to make my own rear seat and flat-bed set-up. It is made from real metal, 1" tube and 1" Angle. Think it worked out pretty good. Today I have it painted, and putting back on the cart, will have pix later on that. Frame is black and seats are red and foot panel also. I still need to get or make seat pad and backrest for it. Note the red rubber bumpers I finally got for the top to rest on. They are for Aftermarket truck work. $40 for pair, not too cheap, but were just what was needed. The metal Just makes contact the way they are mounted, so hope the work OK with load. You can also see some other rubber pads I got, but were kinda big and not high enough, so didn't use them.

This is a G9 model. Same as a G2 model, the first 4-stroke they made. G2 was only couple years, then they quit it and made others, then for economy model remade it to the G9 model like I have for one or two years is all. Think engines and drives are same for many models, but body parts and accesories are all diff from later ones. Orig seats are aluminum and lighter. They say to add bigger springs with seat. Mine has once had 2" lift put on, and hoping maybe the springs are heavier??? Seems to still have plenty of bounce, but haven't tried it out with people load either yet. We shall see.

Guy down road was offering cushions roadside so drove cart down to see what he had. His were off boats, a whole truck full he got from closed builder. I found a couple, look pretty good size and even in red/white! The back one is loose and can slip off to be able to fold the top and make bed. Seat is a little short to set on with that back cushion out that far, but is workable. Good enough for this clunker and first time trying to build such a thing.

I did need another rear pan/cover over engine area. Was gone when I got it. Went way up to MI to get used front and rear plastics and painted nice MM colors. never bolted it on, seemed to snap down and be good. On trailer in stiff wind one day, took off and landed thru another guys grill and windshield. Oh, well, tie the stuff down! Now it wont fit with the seat anyway. Gonna make some plywood panels for sides or something, but do that later.
