Default CC ' 01 48v Carryall I Project with Pictures

Just picked up this '01 CC Carryall I for a song and a dance.



I plan on building a stealth hunting buggy for chasing pigs at night on my deer lease, travel to the deer stand and back, and the occasional round of Sporting Clays. Its about a 6 mile round trip to the deer stand and back on ranch roads with a few hills. It gets cold up near the Texas panhandle but usually it's not less than the middle teens. Should I be worried about being able to make the round trip on a charge even when it is cold?

Here are my plans, please critique - scoff - suggest - ridicule - or agree and help me get this thing built out.

1. I am picking up new Trojan T-875's on Monday, I pulled the old ones out today and scrubbed the rails down. There was massive corrosion on the battery terminals and mounting hardware. I used baking soda spray to neutralize everything. Should I coat the AL rails the batteries sit on and if so what should I use, I was thinking undercoating?

2. Looking around town for some 4 gauge welding cable and connectors to do a cable upgrade, most of the stock battery jumper cables are eaten through to the point of breaking and will need to be replaced anyway.

3. I ordered an All Sport "Super Sport 7.5"" lift kit - its says it has heavy duty springs for the rear and I thought that would help with the Carryall bed.

4. Got some steel 10" wheels with 22" x 11" x 10" Sahara Classic tires ordered.

5. Can't decide if I want to ditch the cab or just pull the doors off. That cab sure would be nice in the dead of winter but I am also worried about the extra weight.

6. Ordered a dash board digital volt meter to keep an eye on things.

7. Kicking around the idea of a matte camo paint job. Like a rat rod - camo - flames - matte primer - kind of a thing. Maybe matte black with matte OD green flames - or - chocolate chip desert tan camo flames/skulls Punisher thing.

8. Installing red LED interior lighting to preserve night vision while pig hunting and possibly a cop car spotlight with interior handle and red filter.

I am really stoked about the cart project and I would like to avoid as many mistakes as possible so any advice will be considered.

What else should I be thinking about

Looks like a great project ... The corrosion in the battery supports is typical. Inspect them they usually need to have a couple of the aluminum Angle supports replaced ...speaking of batteries I would definite go 4 ga cables and consider a larger controller to aid in getting the power to the wheels

Travel distance is well within range from what I get out of my 2 carts, better than 20 miles. Keep the door for winter use, nicer than the other covers.
