Default '97 CC DS project for my folks

Its really looking good and yes I agree - a new dash goes a long ways in updating the interior of these carts.

BTW, I stopped my rattling doors by using some of the light foam weatherstrip (typically used for doors and windows). Had to get the really light-duty stuff - not too thick - but it worked. I put it only on the bottom. It also has helped keep most of the water out of the glove box.

Just a personal preference: I'd have removed those factory cupholders since you have 4 in the dash now - makes the dash area look a little cleaner IMO.

If the plastic glove box doors end up rattling, those little felt dots that are put onto cabinet doors to keep them from clunking when being closed are a great way to squelch the rattle.
Can you ever have enough cup holders? If he did decide to take them off, he could sell them. The OEM cup holders fetch a fair amount in the used market. They are ridiculous to purchase OEM new.

Yes, I do plan on removing the OEM cup holders as I think they now take away from the good looks of the new dash, but I didn't realize they may be a hot commodity!

Thanks for that, and the compliments!

Welllll I wouldn't say "hot", but it should be easy to get a "fair" price for them. ;)

Roughly $20-ea OEM new, I've seen good used go for $20-set here on BGW.

All the switches are wired up and working in the new dash, as well as the digital volt meter (switched as well). And removed the old cup holders

Also got the center caps in and the new wheels put on.

Unfortunately, two of the lug nuts stripped on one of the front wheels




And my thought was to spot weld the back of the stud, but looking at the pictures, I don't know if I can. Looks like it might be aluminum, or a pot metal?

Any ideas would be helpful, on top of trying to wedge something behind the stud to hopefully get the lug nut off!

Man that sucks! Bad situation all around. Can't remove wheel with hub attached because shinny new center cap is over the spindle nut. Can't drill out the stripped studs due to tight quarters.

If I understand correctly, your saying the stud knurl has stripped? Hopefully it failed before it wrecked your hub. But If both of the stripped studs are on the same hub and it were me, I would weld the crap out of the bad studs just to get wheel off and replace the whole hub with a used/new one. I don't think its aluminum but to test grab the nearest magnet. Also sometimes an impact gun can knock the nut loose while anything else will just spin the stud. Good luck!!!

Wow, it's been over a month so here's an update. The cold spell is gone!!!

I was able to drill and chisel out the wheel lugs (stripped splines) from the backside and just replaced the hub with a new one. PITA but I got it done without damaging the new wheel! And with only one black and blue thumb nail, smashed right at the cuticle. And that one really hurt

The rear seat kit came in, with matching seat covers for the front seat, so I got them on tonight and they turned out better than I expected! And for anyone doing this, an electric stapler is extremely helpful!

The red panel on the left of the back looks loose but it's not. It stretched very well and it's very taut throughout.



I now have everything I need including all my paint supplies and I'm going with a BC/CC system. The main body will be a light metallic red, with Husker decals applied after the base coat. The top will be white with two red stripes on the top and underside, with the colors matching the seats. I'll then clear coat all of it, not knowing yet if I'll need to cut and buff it afterwards. Hopefully I'll get a good last wet coat that will flow out. The top will definitely not get cut and buffed!

As soon as my buddy has his paint booth available (hopefully this week) I'm going to spray it so I can get it all put together and delivered to the folks! And they have no idea what I've done to it so I'm really excited to see their expressions!

So Close!

Are you reversing the direction of the side handles on the seat? Seems like that would make it harder to get in and out, especially for older folks. Looks great otherwise.
