Nice start! You staying electric or dropping a gas engine in it? If staying electric you going with big lead acid batteries or going lithium?

You're at a great stage to wonder about the 'could be' part of restoring a cart...

I think if I were to start fresh I'd make a low rider this time, possibly even stretch it.

I am going to stay electric. I bought this to fix up and sell. I have a new new white TXT top and the biggest problem I have is to figure out what color to make the body. I am going to have the body powder coated as of now I am leaning toward silver or blue any thoughts.

Thanks
Adam

Personally I would lean towards the silver. There are so many blue carts out there.
Cleaning and painting the frame has already made a difference!

Are you going to upgrade to solid state or staying with the resistor coils?

I've never priced it, but always assumed powder coating made more sense if you were gonna keep it, unless you got a friend...

Were it mine to flip, I'd just blast and paint it. Same with controller upgrade, but it kinda depends on the market where you are.

I actually went with silver. I am staying with resistor coils I picked up the cart super cheap and although I really like working in the garage I am hopeful to make a few bucks on this cart and I didnít want to put a lot of money in an older cart

I donít have the ability to paint a body and make it look like anything worth owning. I priced having it painted and powder coat a as crazy as it sounds powder coat was $100 cheaper. And yes I plan on selling it when it is done. It should be a nice cart for someone brand new batteries, new seats powder coated body and a bunch of other stuff that needed to be replaced. I am also going to put underbody lights with a light bar and brake lights
