I see that there are several types available. Some have the bars for the brush guard under the lights, such as yours, and some have the bars between the lights. Some feature a partial wrap around (the front cowl), others have more of a full wrap around.

Do you like yours? Any comments on which that you think you would prefer?

Mine is purely aesthetic and don't think it would really hold up to much abuse. I've seen one made for DS and XTR that wraps around and bolts onto the sides some how. It looks nice and more stout. Just depends on how you plan to use it.

It's been a couple of weeks since I had a day off. I finally got to work on the project a little today.

I added 2 more LED SPST switches on the dash, for a total of 5. I am using 4 of them. 1 will be left for future use if I can find something that I want wired into 12V.

Here's the 4 switch configuration:

1 for the front dash LED lights.
1 for the radio.
1 for the under body work light (I like this best, it lights up the fuse box area and really helps to provide some lighting to an otherwise dark area).
1 for the front kickplate area LED lights.

I took a piece of the rubber diamond plate mat that I purchased, and made my own kick plate. I used some 3M 2 sided (outdoor version) tape. I think it looks pretty good. I am also going to use some of the rubber diamond plate material to make a pad for the rear speakers, which will be mounted behind and under the seatback area.

I also had enough time to mount the front and rear lights.

The wife picked out the colors for the seats, and they match the color of the cart perfect. GO FIGURE

The original seats were so old that when I took things apart, there was mold growing between the armrests, and the plywood seat. I cleaned it up with some disinfectant and installed the bottom seat.

I am now in wait mode for some new rubber mounting items (the front rubber spacers that mount the aluminum supports to the front cowl for the windshield, and also rubber spacers for the seatback supports at the rear of the cart). The originals were worn down to dust.

This is coming together great. I really like that diamond plate rubber flooring material. That is something I might consider on mine in the future.

Got a chance to get more done this morning before the Super Bowl.

FYI, for the record, I could care less who wins as long as one of my Super Bowl pool numbers hits!

I finally received the new hardware that I had ordered. I installed new hardware for the rear body, as well as for the lower seat assembly.

I also installled the seat back assembly with new seat back support mounting pads (the little black plastic pieces that the aluminum supports rest on).

The pics also show a bagwell liner that is SUPPOSED to fit 1981 thru late 90's carts. However, it has a molded bend in it that does not allow it to fit properly on the older carts. I will have to figure out what to do to make it fit!

I purchased a set of seat covers that are zip on style. I just didn't feel like removing the old staples and covers, and then going thru the re-install again.

Although I was a little skeptical about the fit, I was surprised at the quality of the work and the fit. The seat backs were even marked which way 'top' was to be oriented.

I removed the seat back supports, and am painting them black to better match the color scheme.

I also cut out some leftover diamond plate rubber material, and will use this to provide a non -skid mat for the rear speakers. I'm going to use an aluminum bracket to mount the tops of the speakers to the seatback support, and let the speakers sit on the diamond mat.

I installed the repainted seat backs with the new seat covers.

I also installed the front windshield assembly, along with the new black plastic pads both front and rear, that protect the body paint from the aluminum support brackets.

The cart build is finally getting to the finish line!

The steering wheel was purchased from Craigslist locally. I spent $20.00 for the steering wheel and $25.00 for the steering wheel adapter.

The front bumper was purchased from a BGW site sponsor for less than $20.00.

I still have to install the rear speakers, and then figure out how to install the bagwell liner. The pic might show that it fits nicely. However, it must be tipped to fit, causing the bottom to not lay flat with the body. I would guess that there is a 25-30 degree angle of void between the bottom of the liner and the cart body. I will take more pics of this to follow!
