Default 1st Club Car Build

Hey all, Thanks to the content of this forum, I have embarked upon my 1st build. We start with a farm based 1999 Club Car DS. Upon first disassembly, I realized that approximately 100 pounds of the overall weight was ancient, caked on mud and rust. Yea!....ugh! Well, God hates a coward, so here we go! Being computer illiterate, how do I continue on this thread as I go along? Thanx very much for the help and great info, and wish me luck! :)

Next step! Roof and metal removed, front cowl removed, bagwell removed.
Upon further investigation I realize there are no battery hold downs, and that virtually every screw is rusted together and I get the unique opportunity to grind them off or drill them out.....yea!.....

After removing the seats, I tackled the rear cowl with the same success as the front (much cursing, penetrating fluid, grinding and drilling) :) then realized that mud is indeed an incredible binding agent. OK out of the garage to be hosed down.....

OK, semi clean, time to order battery hold downs, 4 gauge cables set to replace rotten 6 gauge set, voltage reducer, fuse block, ground block, lift kit, tires and wheels, and new seat coverings. Just noticed that I have 2 different sizes of tires and 4 different tread patterns....Brilliant!
