Golf cart facelift

A few weeks ago I picked up an old motorized golf cart for out at camp

Since I had no plans on ever using it for golfing I removed the bag holders on the back and built a seat for passengers. The seat needed to lift in order to refuel.

I brought it out to camp and drove it around for a bit to work out the bugs. I found a few minor gremlins in the way of faulty in line fuses. Once those were swapped out she runs good. So back on the trailer and back to town to put some lipstick on the old pig. I initially wanted a nice metallic red but couldn't find anything for a decent price so I went with a flat burgundy. 4 cans of spray later she looked like this

Yesterday I found some boat seats for a good price. They will replace the heavy mismatched tractor seats that were on there.

I also picked up a new coil and voltage regulator which I have to install. Then reinstall the rear seat. A seat belt is on order already. For now a ratchet strap is a temporary fix.

Nice. Looks good. I like your choice in colors and the new seats. Now a custom dual exhaust and mag wheels will finish her off. :biggrin:

Lmao. Yep. While I'm at it a two cylinder 500cc snowmobile engine might do nicely.

There's a video of one that did 118mph on the Strip. It could lay rubber for 100ft. Hmm mm. ........

Got her finished up for now. Reinstalled the rear seat and did some fine tuning with the low idle and choke cable. She'll be back out to camp this weekend. I'm looking into different options for lighting for nighttime driving since it will be used to haul my drunken ass back to the camper at the end of the night. I did install a couple of reflectors for the back. I'm thinking of led fog light. Run it right back to the battery with an in line fuse and a switch on the dash. We'll see

ATV trail lights? Many come bundled with the switch and fuse. Made to take more abuse than fog lights.

yep, put those rims on, maybe a chrome bumper and you're set. Looks real good so far, you've done a nice job.

So I picked up an led light kit for at night. I spent a good part of the morning installing the lights. I'm not 100%done as there's a couple things I forgot in town. They are working though. Not bad for a cheap kit that comes with the lights, switch, and wires. Looking forward to seeing how they work tonight.

If you need more light, I've bought several sets (of 4) off ebay from this guy:

My son put 4 on his catfishing/bowfishing boat & it lights up the shoreline like daylight.

Same lights at northern are a bit pricier :

The e bay lights are well built & work great & can't beat the price !

I'll have to look into those. These lights are OK but they're intended for accent lights on a car. I wouldn't exactly call them bright. But they are better than what I had last night which is the flashlight on my cell phone.

Lmao. How'd you guess. I just happened to be halfway through a 12 pack at that point sitting a hundred feet away.
