Default My '91 DS Build

Since some of the goodies are going to be arriving shortly, figured I might as well start a thread for it.. Here are some before and after pics of the paint job I did this weekend..

This cart is mostly going to be used for cruising around the neighborhood and for my hunt lease up in Georgia.. Went with a Forest Green Pearl(everyone has camo, figured i'd be different). This was a rattle can job.. Wax/degreased everything, sanded her down.. 1 coat adhesion promoter, 2 coats of sandable primer, light sand and clean, 3 coats of forest green pearl and 3 coats of clear(all duplicolor products).

The roof was also painted to match the body.. Scotch brite pad to scuff it up a bit, 1 coat adhesion promoter, 3 coats of paint, 3 coats of clear.. VOILA! Pretty easy except for the trim on the inside was a pain..

Tires/Wheels will be coming in next week.. Working on getting some headlights, controller and cables right now..

Looks good. Paint came out nice!

Are you going to convert to 48v?

Eventually, yes.. I am going to keep the 36v motor for the time being and upgrade batteries to 48v to start.. See what kind of performance I get out of that and go from there.. I'd love to just throw in a plum quick but finances aren't there right now for all that.. Going to start small and work my way up until I feel I have enough power/torque for what i'm using it for..

If you put 48v to your stock components you are going to start a fire

The motor will be fine. I dont think anything else will be

That's why I'm glad there's people like you here pointing me in the right direction lol.. So I guess the way I should have worded that was as follows:

I plan on upgrading the controller, solenoid, cables and f/r switch BEFORE I convert to 48v batteries.. Does that make more sense?

Lol yes that's better. www.cartsunlimited.net is the place to go for the conversion. I know you can piece it together etc etc but it really is better to buy a good kit that's been put to the test

I think ScottyB is better for the upgraded parts....That's who I went through when I completed mine. Nice with the new DPI charger you don't have to worry about unplugging the cart...Just check water once a month a unplug to ride. Plus with ScottyB its easier to ask questions on here or just call him.

The upgraded F/R switch isn't really needed till you go with a more powerful motor
