The black diamond plate has arrived! Now I can get this installed as well as the fender flares for the rear cowl. Yahoo! Stereo should be here Friday, so I can get going on the rear speaker install as well as the seats, corresponding metal bits, basket, and club strap. The rear speakers will be installed directly to the roof mounts, so they have to be attached to the mounts prior to all the metal being brought together. I wll drill the uprights so as to run / hide the speaker wires, so it has to be all done in one step. Keep tuned!

nutsehc, it's looking good! What size are the tires? I looked but didn't see where you said the size, or I read right past it.

El Camino,
You didn't miss anything, I failed to say. They are 12 inch storm trooper rims with 23 inch duro desert all terrain tires. I also failed to mention that it is a 48 volt club car. I was very pleasantly surprised at the total lift result. Ground clearance at mid cart is 17 inches, more than my truck!

This weekend was the time to get the diamond plate and rear fender flares installed. I had hoped to get the rear speakers for the stereo installed as well, but they sent me white ones rather than black, so had to return them and be patient.... Started with kickplate, making sure it was centered and wrapping the drill bit with electrical tape so as to not drill into the batteries... success! Moving on to the rocker panels I found that the notch for the hoop metal on the dash wasn't fitting, so out comes the dremel and a few minutes later, we're golden. The rockers came with spacers for the install
and I found the hot tip to be to install the spacers with a bolt though the back to hold them in place until the bolts being pushed in from the front went through them and pushed them out the back. Much easier than trying to manipulate them while juggling the rocker panels and bolts fromn the front. the beast is starting to look like the finished product..

After getting the kickplate and rockers installed, i could then start to work on the rear fender flares. Using painters tape to hold them in place, i was able to move them around, back and forth and up and down till I had a symetrical, kinda balanced look. Then I marked them for the trimming that would be necessary for them to fit to the body contours as well as the rocker panels. Back to the dremel and sanding blocks to get the proper fit. Retape them in place, drill the holes and bolt them on. Sweet! Took a little longer than i had anticipated, but very pleased with the end result. The diamond plate and fender flares give it a kind of tough off road look. Reinstalled to bagwell protector, and all the rear body needs is the bumper which should arrive Monday.

Decided to go ahead and mount the seat metal and seats so i could then mount the diamond plate access panel and befinshed with that stage of the build. Was little bit tight due to the bar i installed for the voltage reducer, but it all worked out. If you look at the pictures of the diamond plate install, you'll see that i drilled holes next to seat uprights for the black flex that the rear speaker wires are run through. I snaked them up through the uprights behind the seat mounting plate and will drill the roof uprights to pull the wires through for the rear speakers. you can see those wrapped around the basket arms. That accomplished, I put the bench in place and attched the rear access panel. She really looks great now, a good, aggressive stance with the fender flares giving her nice wide shoulders. Getting excited to get her on the road! Should receive the front cowl from paint this week, ( when it first arrived it looked as if it had been worked on by some one with a blindfold on, and six thumbs! Returned it to be done properly. Hoping for the best) till then, i will work on getting the dash and all the various switches installed and hooked up.

This week in addition to getting the dash, etc set, i am going to reblack the steering column plastic and install the custom wheel pic to follow! In the meantime, here are couple of pix of the nifty little storage area under the bench super cool for gloves, scorecards, extar ball, birdie bottle, etc!
