Default '07 Club Car Precedent 12-8volt Conversion

Guys, I am in need of some help!!
I am trying to convert my cart from 4-12vlt batteries to 6-8vlt batteries & also replace my Battery Bucket.
My Battery bucket has a crack down the middle of it. Well, I just found that the Battery bucket is bolted on but for the life of me I can't find what it is bolted to under the bottom of the cart.

Attached is a picture of the bolt on the topside in the battery bucket but I can't find the bolt underneath the bottom of the cart.

Has someone done this before? Can someone give me some advice here?

Thanks Crashtest, I will see if I can get them out. It does look like 4 but mine seem to either be rounded or I cannot find the correct size wrench.

Theyre self tappers. Threaded into frame beam. No nut. The head was once 10mm before the corrosion got to it. Use a grinder and cut the heads off. Pull the bucket out. Grind bolts down to frame. Install new bucket. Make new holes with new bolts

Thanks for the help guys.

Looks like I finally got it. The heads were so corroded that I hammered a 9mm socket on them & got them out. Now I can get to work putting this whole thang together.

Update,

I have removed the Battery bucket & am now in the process of getting ready to configure my cart for the installation of the 12-8vlt conversion kit.

Has anyone done this before? I was reviewing the instructions tonight and noticed that the Controller & Solenoid will not be mounted in the Battery bucket but instead will be on a metal bracket that will be underneath the cart above the Motor. Is this a safe option for a Lifted Off-Road Cart? Won't the Controller be subjected to getting wet while driving through the woods & mudholes? How do you get around this issue? See the attached photo:

Is it the factory conversion kit? The factory kit has a cover that somewhat protect the electronics from the elements.
