Sounds like you got a plan - and it sounds like youíre looking forward to the journey.
And I gotta say, the next time ( tomorrow ,probably ) Iím rolling in the gravel under which ever vehicle iím working on, Iíll be thinking of your sweet set-up.
Looks great !

Thanks, but the shop is my neighbors. He was one of my team mates before I retired in December. He is a great guy. He lives at the top of my road so he lets me use it anytime I need it. We have worked together on several projects in his shop. We worked on his rollback right before this getting all the lights working. Then we put Woodie on the lift.

I got the go ahead from the wife on the 72 volt upgrade (to buy batteries 9-8volts$$$$) so later today I'll take the 36 volt controller out and solenoid and replace them with the 72 volt version! Then get the battery trays in order and start ripping out the wiring for the lights. I ordered a yellow digital voltmeter just now for it. I have to redo the rear tray to hold 3 of the 8 volt batteries. He cut it out so I will fab up something to hold the batteries.
I will need to pull the dash out of it and take the fake gauges out and either find some that fit are cut a new dash. I'm going to move the key & head light switches to the dash.

Good to have friends & great neighbors. I manage a church camp, and just down the road is a family whoís been here for 4 generations. You canít swing a dead cat without hitting a member of the Noble family. The town is about 460 population. So when I had a water leak at 10 pm , my friend, the neighbor, tells me, ď I got enough lights on the backhoe to make it look like daytimeĒ. Thought he was exaggerating - he wasnít ; but I had to wait ď Ďtill the floor was done being waxed at the familyís store ď . At about midnight, we dug a hole where the leak turned up, (a whole Ďnother adventure) and the 100 or so kids here, never knew the difference. How I ever got so blessed, is beyond me! Nice to have such good neighbors.

Andy;

Go with a 24v and a 48v Chevy volt lithium module running in series to get to 73.8v comfortably and not have to worry about the maintenance of acid batteries, plus you'll be loosing a lot of weight also.

I bet the Volt modules would run you way less than 9- 8v FLA batteries.

Here you go:

Or...if you really wanna fly... get 10 leaf modules! That thing would be a beast!!!

That would be interesting but way, way over my head!
I'll stick to the 8 volts I guess.

I drove down to the beach last night and went over to the local surf shoppe today and they sold me a board for Woodie. $50.00. Got to clean it up and get all the grip stuff off then have it painted and air brushed!

I have ordered a set of motor cycle markers for it new GPS speedometer, 0- 100 volt digital read out and new 2 position head light switch to go in the dash so it looks like the real deal.
I would really like to get the gas cart sold to help off set some of the Woodie budget if anyone is interested.

SO COOL!

my boss here is a woody freak, he has no less than 8 woody models from the 40's to 50's and about half of them have surf boards on the tops too. I told him about your project this morning after a meeting we had.

Cool dude! in my best surfer voice.

Here is a before and after shot of the board after cleaning all the wax and grips off.
Also the tear drop lights for it. The last 2 are with it against my bike I built for riding here at the beach.

Here are some more pictures of the parts. I'll remove the old dash and the non functional amp gauges and replace with my new ones along with a new head light and key switch.
