Thank you dock. i may check into that frame. i am looking at some options and looking at what may be salvageable from the frame that i have.

This morning i was talking and showing the pictures to a guy that i work with and he was telling me of a friend of his that does custom aluminum work and has recently gotten into building custom cart tops and if nothing else he has some tops that have come off of other carts that he has already worked on so i am going to see what he has. Might get a custom cage built out of something a little stronger than what i had.

Roll cages are more "COOL" anyway, so I'd go that route.

Sure, there are real roll cages for carts, if you build it from scratch and fasten to the FRAME and not just bolt through the thin metal body... Anything is better than the lightweight bendy/breaky aluminum framing that is used to hold the top on. At least with a bit more metal attached you may not see so much destruction on a "tip over". But, you're right when you say "WTH are you trying to do in a "golf" cart..." Why are we doing ridiculous things in carts that risk a roll-over?

Oh wait, I have an answer to that - Because it's FUN and we're MEN! <insert grunting noises here> LOL

LOL, you've just gotten it outta your system I guess. Some of us take longer than others... Doesn't make you less of a man. The comment was on the fact that "men" tend to do crazy/stupid things, because somehow we thought it'd be FUN at the time. Most often it is, even if you ended up battered and bruised.

I am only 39 (in a couple days), and done a lot of "ridiculous" stuff, but fortunately have escaped mostly uninjured. I'd say the worst "injury" was when I had a motorcycle accident just over 3 years ago and had a tibial plateau fracture. At SOME time in my past I apparently broke some ribs (according to one of my Dr's after I had x-rays), and broke my foot (according to my orthopedic surgeon after x-rays before my second foot/ankle surgery). Those are my only broken bones I've had (that I know of) and I didn't know I broke most of those until much later. The tibia fracture I would not have realized either, and would have ignored, if they didn't force me to go to the hospital. I have however had a brain bleed, dislocated shoulder, lost some flesh here and there, gashed myself to the bone, etc..

I had trained as a stunt person early in my life, and I was always a rowdy guy when it came to my "toys" (motorcycles, atv's, trucks, cars, sandrails, bicycles, skateboards, etc.), so I have been through a lot. I just like to have fun, and go fast, but in as SAFE a manner as possible (hence the "cage" suggestion). I have definitely slowed down a LOT compared to when I was in my teens and 20's, especially since having kids, but we can't let life STOP because we start getting older or because we have been hurt in the past. Gotta live every minute as if it could be your last, and have as much fun as you can in the process.

As I tell my family and friends after each and every injury - "It'll grow back!". ;)

Butterface, the Flipper sign (Custom made by AllSports) bolts right on a Club Car DS like yours and mine. Send me a PM with your name and address and I'll ship it to ya FREE!

Glad you didn't get hurt like I did.
OBill

Last July at London, Kentucky. Had Lap Seat Belt On. Good Thing, Kept me on the cart. Notice how the Plastic Steering Wheel broke up. So did the Windshield. About cut my right thumb off! (ER $800. +) (Cart, Lo$t count)


This happened Spring 2009. Jakes upper brush guard did not hold. (Don't Buy One to use for Roll Bar Save your money.)
Was wearing a helmet and have 5 point harness. (Still cracked ribs and got blood clot on brain.) (Ambulance $470.+) (Hospital and Cart $$$ unknown)


Now have Custom Cage made by AllSports...This may keep me off the ground??? Just had my head examined two weeks ago and am good to go again!
