I'll take some "before" pics this weekend. After browsing the gallery and looking at the pics of projects I can see the early pics are critical to the process.

Looking forward to getting to know the crowd.

Roll,

Welcome to the forum

Lots of good people with an amazing amount of golf cart knowledge!


P.S> Take care of the corrosion FIRST - it may save you a lot of money down the road....

Noted. How do I "take care of the corrosion"? What are others doing to clean it up and protect it from further damage?

Start with the battery cables. Make a drawing of how every cable is connected.

Then, disconnect a cable at the negative post to interrupt the battery circuit.

Take off a cable and clean each end with some WD-40 and a scrub brush or scotchbrite pad until the ends are nice and shiny. Clean the battery posts. Keep doing this for all of your cables. Go slow and do one at a time around the cart. Check for worn and corroded cables and replace if necessary. When you're done, spray on a battery terminal protectant. You can get this spray at an auto parts store.

Here's a picture of what happens to corroded cables:

A previous owner installed 2 gauge cables (overkill) on the cart. However, there was never any maintenance done on the cables. The first time that I took the cart out for a long drive one of the cable ends overheated (too much resistance caused by a corroded cable end) and heated up the cable end SO HOT that it melted the top of the battery post
