Start with the site sponsors, they help us keep this site. If they can't help, check eBay, there are golf cart kits there. I cannot attest to the quality though.

If you can afford the wrap kits I'd go that route, if not painting is pretty easy. If you mess up with the wrap, it's hard or impossible to fix. If you paint, it's super easy to fix. Since you are doing camo, go with the Rustoleum paint at HD. Get all 4 colors, green, brown, black, and tan. I went with an oak leaf pattern, I just sprayed the whole cart olive green, two coats. Then sprayed over the leaf in random patterns in random colors. I also got some tall grass from the fields and sprayed over that on the bottom portion of the body panels. Looks decent. Got lots of compliments on it. Cost about $25.

I was a little afraid to try the wraps, so I ended up painting.

I agree with the rattle cans of camo paint. When they don't have the color you want in camo find the color in flat. I did mine in four steps. First as mentioned above I gave it a coat of a dark color. By the way I did spray on a fiberglass primer first.

Then I added painters tape to form branches, and painted over with another color. Take the tape off and you have branches. After that as slonomo said spray paint leaves, I used oak and maple with different colors.

Here's some pictures of my test bucket, and the steps I took.

When done I lightly went over with a dark green spray to tone down the overall color a bit.

Turned out great, what kind of prep time was involved?

It took a little while because of all the steps. Had to wait for it to dry each time.

I primed, then when dry I covered in the rust color. When dry I added the blue tape for branches and hit it with the dark brown. When dry more blue tape for more branches, then the gray color. Once dry I removed all the tape, had two colors of branches, and started with leaves. I had three colors of leaves so I let each one dry before putting on the other. For leaves I just held a piece of paper with the leaf cutout in front and sprayed over it. I one case I had two leaves on the same paper so I got two with every shot of paint.

When everything was dry I went lightly over the entire thing with a dark green camo. This help cut the brightness of the gray. Then to play it safe I found a matte sealer. I went with matte so it wouldn't shine as bad.

Here's a picture from Thanksgiving where my sister was giving the grandkids a ride. Guess that's the best one I have to show off the paint job.

Here is my cart that I wrapped. The wrap is relatively easy to put on. It just takes time cutting and fitting every piece. I wrapped mine for around $150. I have done two, the first one took about 6 hours and the second about 4. Anybody can do it that has a little patience.
