What lift kit did you use? Model number, where did you buy it? Looks like a couple that I have seen on various sites.
Thanks in advance

It is the 6 inch double A arm kit from Rocky Top carts. Seems to work well.

Angry Re: 1st Club Car Build

Well, finally came to the realization that LSV Carts of Costa Mesa Ca. (jamesparknewport on Ebay) was the absolute worst place on the planet to purchase a cart body from. They will not answer calls, much less return them, and after their boy Kyle hung up on me in midsentence, it became painfully clear that I would be stuck with a front cowl that was unbelievably poorly prepped and painted. I will just let VISA deal with them. After a month and a half of waiting for them to get things right, I decided that I just needed to get this cart finished. So after much buffing and polishing on my own, I used a dremel to cut in the proper holes for my lights, and then decided to try to use graphics, fender flares, and other bolt ons to conceal blemishes and flaws, and to plug the extra holes with an antenna,and other useful accessories. Bolted the cowl to the cart, and from a distance it doesn't look totally horrendous. It is unfortunate indeed that a company with the epitome of poor customer service is still able to make sales and hose people on their purchases. Avoid LSV Carts (jamesparknewport on Ebay) like the plague!!!!!

Sorry to say this, but they have been complained about before. The person that dealt with them had the same results you have.

Anxious to get this beast on the road, I decided to move forward on this build despite an exceptionally poor experience with LSV golf carts (jamesparknewport) on Ebay. Bolted on the front fender flares after cutting them to fit around the diamond plate runners, attached the rear risers for the roof, (after pulling the wires for the rear speakers through them) I drilled a hole for the wires just at the bend going upwards from the seat back uprights, and then used a rubber captured nut insert to keep the wires from chafing and to give me something that would extend out of the uprights to tie wrap the plastic flex to. Went remarkably smoothly, and now all the wiring is concealed. I decided to use the mounting system from Go Pro cameras to mount the speakers so that I could clip them on and off which gives me the option of turning them around to face backwards for parades when towing a trailer/ float. I manufactured an attachment piece from aluminum to attach them to the roof supports and attached to Go Pro mounts to them. (better pictures to follow) I then mounted the windshield metal and the tinted windshield. The picture shows one speaker fully mounted, and the other held in place with tie wraps for measurement purposes. Then it was time for Christmas gatherings and family, so the other speaker will be finished tonight. Now just waiting on the roof to come back from paint, the front brush guard to show up, some vinyl company logos, and she'll be finished!

As promised, here are a couple of better shots of the rear speaker mounting system. I used 1/2 inch aluminum channel to attach the Go Pro camera foot to the roof arm, and then used a Go Pro camera adhesive mounting attachment plate plus 4 countersunk 1/4 inch screw to attach the speakers. The attachment plate slide on to the camera foot and locks providing a stable area for the speaker to hang from. Now, whenever the speakers need to be removed or turned towards the back for a parade it is a 2 second process to do so. I can also fade between the two set of speakers to get optimum high end from the rear near your ears while keeping low end firing from the front. The first 2 photos show the wiring in flex drilled through the rear cowl. The flex is then routed up the rear seat brackets, then the wire is pulled the roof attachment arms and then back into flex to the speakers.The next 2 show the speaker facing forwards then turned to the rear.

Looks great. I'm liking the black diamondplate.

What did you paint the front dash band piece with? I need to do that on mine too.
