Good luck on your build. Should be a lot of fun. Very interested to see how it comes out.
I agree with taking the roof off. I doesn't go with that style of cart at all.

First step is to rip it apart and get the salt damaged chrome off to get replated. It needs a few fiberglass repairs and I will be filling a couple of the holes in the body. I ordered a new windshield yesterday.
This looks like a fun build.

Thanks!

So, I started checking tire widths and aspect ratios to see what would fit in the tight wheel wells. I discovered the cart has a 2" lowering block on the rear axle so I cant go much lower without airbags. - and that isn't the direction I want to go. I'd have to cut off the fenders.

The current tires 165/70R13's, which should be 6.5" wide and 4.55" tall if my math is correct. So they should be a little over 21" tall

I discovered the Series 51 Smoothies are only offered in a 4x4.25 pattern in the 15" rim. Not a 14". So, slight change of plans. This tightens things up a bit in the wheel wells. But I discovered Coker tire sells a low profile wide whitewall in a 185/55/15. This tire should be (feel free to check my math if anyone is a tire guy) 7.323 inches wide and 3.23 inches tall. Which should also put them around 21" tall.

So I MAY be ok with a larger 15" rims. And I'll still keep the look I was going after. I am a little sticker shocks by the cost of the rims and tires, but c'est la vie. Shes gonna look sweet!

Looks like a fun cart.

Body is a california roadster. There are several in my neighborhood. Custom cart building company American Custom Golf Cars (ACG) makes them of fiberglass on club car DS frames. Cant wait to see the finished product.
