Alright - last time posting in this thread if nobody cares....

Today I got the body back from paint. I had to finish up the wiring from the front of the cart to the back...

The key here is to avoid making any scratches that are avoidable....

Here are some basic pictures of the progress.... hopefully now some people can see what all of the cutting and trimming lead too....

Tomorrow will be a day of rebuilding the rear end seals around the input shaft and getting the back of the cart done.

If you are taking your cart apart more than once - do yourself a favor and get one of these.... they are priceless... pneumatic rivet gun.....


Like I said - body is back from paint... deep midnight metallic blue in base plus clear... well worth the money and time for it to last a long time....re-attach the headlights...




Next step was to get the dash cover mounted up and the stereo installed as well as the key switch mounted.


Next thing I did was put the diamond plate pedals on - notice the position of the cabin lights too. This is controlled by a switch inside of the drivers side dash...



Get the front wheels mounted and check for clearences...... These things look even better in person.....




Finally - install the new diamond plate shock cover... (make sure to watch the wires coming out of the dash - ask me why....)


Tomorrow will be the back of the cart and the seats.... I already re-covered them - so it will just be the install.....

I like the work you have done. I would like a lesson on how you did the body prep and paint. Keep up the good work so us that are getting ready to attempt can learn

Looks good. I like those tires and wheels. Would love to tuck some of those under one of mine.

To answer the questions that have been asked...

First - the wheels and tires are 215-35-12's mounted on Spider brand rims. I ordered them through the company that I ususally buy my stock from - same with the brake cover and accel. cover.

Here was today's progress....

I started off having to fix a nasty leak in the rear end... since I couldn't identify where the leak came from I replaced the upper gasket around the input shaft and also took the diff. cover off, scraped the old gasket off, and re-sealed...then refilled with 30W non detergent oil. I figured since the new motor was coming in this week I may as well leave it out too.

Here is the view of the motor.


Take the 3 bolts out and beat the snot out of the motor until it comes loose. - This is what you see...


Next, take the retaining clip out with a small pair of needle nose pliers.


This gives you access to the input shaft and the gasket on the upper...



Everything goes back together pretty much the same way... As I suspected - it was bone dry when I removed the diff cover....



Now that was done I was able to complete the rest of the front end - added the window, the top support, and shored up some more wiring.


Next - I got the rear body mounted up...



Inserted the rear lights...


Got the rocker panels installed


Added the new FR lever.....


And finally added the diamond plate kick plate...


Last step was to get the handles added back to the front seat cushion...


I'm sure I am leaving out some small steps - but this is the brunt of what happend today....

Still waiting on the motor and rear seat cushions....

Looks awesome, here is (maybe) a dumb question, How do you keep water out of your speakers when your beer sweats? I like the location but would worry about water?
