Default Welding on electric carts

If I wanted to weld onto part of the cart for some form of modification what do I need to disconnect to keep from frying any electrical components just in case the ground is not perfect when I strike an arc? If it is something easily removed I would before welding. I feel it would be wise to disconnect the batteries at least but can some one clue me in on if anything else needs to be disconnected. I dont want to see smoke in more than one place (especially my wallet).

36 and 48v carts use a two wire system for all accessories. There should be no ground on the cart frame. Check it for yourself just to be sure no one has wired something silly.

Souldn't be an issue, but you can always play it safe and disconnect the main battery + and - connections.
