Scotty, That 89 don't just have A solenoid. It has 5 of them. Might want
to think about this before you try to go 48V.

It has been about 6 months. The cart exceeded my expectations on 48v. I bought another 89 and boosted it to 48 volts as well. I found a couple of 2003 bodies for them. They are a fairly easy fit. A few shims are needed in front and the rear. A new seat support bracket is needed under the front of the rear plastic body. AND POOF! 1989 becomes a 2003. The new seats, steering wheel, bumpers, roof supports and plastic roof all fit on within reason.
I was gonna make a new thread but this old one will do for the rest of the build.....I used this cart hard for six months; Even took it to some fairly extreme off roading. And then one day stripped the body off. Removed the six 8v batteries. Rolled it over on it's side in the drive and pressure washed the bejesus out of it. Cleaning revealed some corroded battery frames so the old angle braces were removed and new installed where needed. It looked like this when it went to the welder...at this point it already has a Jakes 3 inch spindle lift on the front and a custom axle flip with one extra leaf added in the rear = 4 inches lift.

So when I got home I decided to try the Workhorse extra large cargo box on the back. The new rear is just sitting on it for mock up. I noticed the frame on the ezgo must have measured the same out to out as the CC. Sweet! I had some leaf spring ends left over from the custom rear stack. They bolted right up to the workhorse bed mounts. I just need to build supports to the rear bumper mounts. Now I'm looking hard at an Ezgo 12v actuator I bought. I think it would be an excellent feature on this build....http://www.buggiesgonewild.com/attac...1&d=1220325238

Scotty, would a late model body also fit a 1983?
I found a custom painted late model body but there sure are alot of extra drill holes in areas that my 83 doesnt have.. Also, how can I find out what all the extra drill holes are for?

Basically if the 1983 looks like this cart it will work...both of these carts are '89s. They take the new body. The cart in the back already has the new style seats, steering wheel, roof supports and roof on it. I'm not sure what year the body changed? Maybe 82?

Thats exactly what my body looks like (without the hole ).. Now I'm off to find out what all the holes are for.

Thanks

A gas body will have a hole for the choke? Where are all these holes?

There are a series of holes along the top of the rear fenders and all around the rear bag well area. My 83 doesnt have any holes around the bag well area(except on the floor). The ones on the rear fenders almost looks like its for fender mouldings or something but you would think they would of plugged them since it was professionally painted so they must be for something of importance.

Okay, there is a bunch of snap on black plastic wear protection for the bag well and rear fender areas. The ones on the rear fenders will say 'no step' and the bag well is 3 pieces. I have a used set from the bagwell. Send me $10 and I will ship em but I don't have the fender guards....

They should of just plugged the holes then. If I buy a custom painted body I dont want those wear protectors back on there, kinda kills the clean look of the custom paint job...

Thanks you very much for the offer though.
