Congratulations on getting everything hooked up correctly on the first try. That's always a good feeling, You have done a great job so far She is looking good ...... lets go for a ride

P.S. Do not rev her up with no load... you can blow up a motor with freewheeling rpms.

Put in the new floor mat. After reading all the posts, I thought I'd try the "heat it up and use soap" method to slip it over the pedals. Then I came to my senses and cut bigger holes.

Just a side comment, my painter had painted my front body trim black for me. I didn't have any trouble with the T-nuts; I just used a stiff scrap of a zip tie to slide it up, push the bolt into the nuts and hand tighten, then slide the zip tie out.

Put the rear body on the cart, then it was time to knock off.

The project is finished! The new roof and seats finally arrived. For the complete finished project, I put the photos in Member Rides:

[QUOTE=Brushpup;693531]Hey WWford, welcome to the forum. I hope to be doing the controller package this spring and converting to 48. I already did some stuff backwards, like a lift for one, before I got some edcuation here.

I wanted to suggest a couple of things. One, is while you have out that PB blaster, soak the forward bolts on your springs. It might help once you start removing them. Rear ones too, but those front ones were a BUGGA on mine. Second, is to check your new U Bolt plate to see if the holes allow the bolts. Mine did not...right out of the box, and someone else posted the same thing here recently. He had to drill his out too. I love my Jakes lift, but this was a bit annoying.

NO JOKE! I was the one who posted about it earlier. WHAT A PAIN!
He's right on the bolts too... I had to literally CUT mine out. (cut the heads with sawz all and then punch bolts through.... I bought all new hardware at hardware store with nylon lock nuts too.......

- Plum Quick:
Rattlesnake 2 48v motor (29-31 mph)

- Carts Unlimited:
GE FSIP 700 Amp Controller
400 Amp Super Duty Solenoid
Modified Potentiometer
2G cable set
Heavy Duty F&R Switch

-Jake's Lifts
6" Spindle Lift Kit
12" Yellow Jacket Wheels w/tires, approx 22" (and a wheelbase extension plate)
HD Rear Leaf Spring Kit

- Still left to order:
Six 8v T-875 Trojan batteries
48v Charger
Roof and Roof Supports
Seats
Other bits and pieces

I'll have a lot of questions as I go, but my first questions involve seats/roof. I want to put in custom seats, and a better roof and rear roof supports. My 1999 Club Car DS has the alumium roof supports, and the flimsy plastic roof. I want to put in a 2000+ year style DS roof and black roof supports. Will the 2000+ roof supports fit my 1999 DS? Does anyone know a good place to order?

As a side note, I also want to replace the seats to a single-back format, if that affects your thinking about the 2000+ roof.
Hello, I'm Nicky New Guy to this post and this is my very first reply and I hope I can be of some help. I don't have a cart of my own because I live in Philadelphia and I have nowhere to store it safely away from thieves. There are ATV's and dirt bikes all over the place doing wheelies in traffic and riding down busy streets in large packs. We have a no chase law in the city so these guys are just going wild. I just want a speedy, quiet, safe vehicle to ride on summer days at a cook out in Fairmount park or ride up and down the street during a block party. I'm 48 and my street riding is over. Too dangerous. With that said, I have been studying golf cart setups for at least 5 years now and your setup is almost identical to what I would buy when I get the chance. On the seats, I like the custom seat company called "Backspin seating". That Crossover bench is the nicest in my opinion. They didn't post a price on the site. Plum quick is the hands down top notch company on motors and related upgrades. Enjoy!
