Nice job, I love the look of a "shorty" windshield. Rotozips are great but you'd better have a steady hand. Used one my CF dash for my radio...glad they make black caulk. LOL.

Yeah, the Rotozips can be difficult to freehand with in certain materials.. I have an external speed control for my router that works well with the Rotozip.. Being able to reduce the bit speed makes it more controllable when cutting thin plastics..

John,
I finally reviewed your entire thread. Nice job. I am coming along quite nicely on my restore. I have taken some pics along the way and will create a thread. I have decided to dump the OBC and go with aftermarket charger. I am right now just cleaning and repainting susp parts. I still need to find a used seat. (know anyone with late model CC seat bottom with arms / hinges for sale?). I found a guy doing custom seat covers rear and front for $125 shipped! I imagine I could probably find one one the side of the road somewhere around Galveston or crystal beach area.

Thanks Cliff!!

It's been a fun project so far.. I'm slowly accumulating the parts to do all the cosmetics.. I need to start searchin for a new late model seat assembly w/two tone upholstery.. Hope to have everything rounded up in time to finish "Ike" up this fall.. Right now first priority is paying the bills for the mechanical/electrical overhaul..

Catch ya later...

Well last night I had a major setback. When I was fitting the front cowl back on the holes for the front were about 3/4" off. Then I found another twist in the frame in the area of the top cowl frame and the main beam. I straightened out the mid section twist in the main beam using some trees and a come along a week ago, but this will be almost impossible to fix by looking at it with the methods I was was using. I found a guy in Austin selling 2004 48volt IQs for $1400 (with charger and 2006 batts). I am just going to buy one of those and put the lift kit, tireswheels, seat roof, rear seat kit (that i got with this ike casualty) on it and sell the rest for parts. scrap the frame. I also discovered my batteries are having issues after I tried to charge them, so they are toast too. After all the stuff I would have to buy for this cart as is, I would have put in $3000 and that is not counting new batteries. Just does not make economic sense to put all new parts on this one with the unusable frame, unusable front cowl (it got majorly warped from laying on its side), unusable batteries, no front seat, no roof or struts, etc. I did discover that my all Aluminum diamond plate rear seat kit sells for $619 at BU. So I am not too sad I spent $700 on this. The tires / wheels are brand new and still have the little knobby things on them. They have never been used. So there is another $800. So this project is Toast..just does not make economic sense to continue.

Not yet... I still have to get a clean used body to prep for paint.. Got a set of new bumpers coming, should be here Monday.. I'm shooting for a true "rollout" on the 1 yr. anniversary of the storm Ike is named after..

I'll update with pics as I get all the parts to finish Ike's cosmetics...

Thanks!!!

The D395 paired with the 500A controller and 4ga cables makes enough torque to snap your head back when you nail it from a dead stop.. I finally had to dial down the "ramp up" on the controller to keep from barking the tires every time I mashed on the pedal too hard.. I also wanted it to be a bit more user friendly for anyone else that wanted to drive it that was used to driving a stock cart.. When I wanna play.... All I have to do is plug in the laptop and dial it back up and we're back to "balls to da walls"!!
