Default My club car project!

Here is my 1988 club car (I know I said it was a 1999, but turns out the serial number makes it a 198. First off, I'd like to say, this may be a VERY slow process. The parts I'm looking at, I cant afford to be buying one per week....probably only one per month, if I'm lucky! So anyways, onto the good stuff!

This is the club car I posted about earlier in the week. I've been driving it around, I love it. Runs great, now to just spice it up a little bit. However, Ive been riding them for quite a few years, but just got into the mechanics of them, so I'll be asking ALOT of silly questions. Hopefully I can get help and make this one hell of a cart!





I have quite a few ideas for it. Lift, new tires/wheels, remove "backseat", put a utility bed on it and possibly new seats. I have a few more ideas pertaining the electrical work, which I need to learn before I do it. So, here we go.

I did search/read before asking these questions with poor to no results. So please bare with me.

I've read some stuff on the amp controller, mainly 400 or 500. What does that do exactly? I've seen what they look like, but thats it. It looks like it just plugs in somewhere. Is this true or is there more to it?

I enjoy lifted carts, true, but dont jump on my case when I ask this question. Is the installation process for a lift kit fairly easy? I have never done it before and would like to install one on my cart, eventually. Ive seen what the lift kit includes, which doesnt seem like theres much to it. Just asking, be gentle!

Last question...for now. When I've been looking at all the different stuff I would like to upgrade, I was blown away! This stuff is NOT cheap! Are most cart related stuff (lift kits, utility beds, etc) in the $300-$400 range? Also, for parts/accessories, what places do you recommend?

Thanks to anyone who actually reads it all. Like I said, I'm new to the mechanics of golf carts, so I'm eager to learn!

Sounds like you have a nice project coming along.
I know almost nothing about the electric motors, but I plan on learning through this project (hopefully).

Cant wait to get it started.

Lifted,

Go to the Site Sponsors button on the second blue bar from the top of your screen. Don't just look at their web pages, go ahead a call them. Talk to a real person and I guarantee that all of them will be glad to help you find the right parts at the right price. I bought my lift from Jake's and they had a small problem with a change in vendors for some tires. They called me to let me know what the problem was, then offered to make it right or give me a refund. Turned out that everything was shipped correctly even though they thought it wasn't. That is attention to detail and true customer service!! To call me up before there was ever a problem is the type of service you can expect, and that alone is worth buying from the sponsors of this site!!

Oh and.....WELCOME TO BGW!!

Fixed the whole connector problem. Replaced it and just rode it around for 20 mins. I noticed it needed a good charge.

Plan on building a small trailer for garden uses. That'll be fun to do during the winter.
Also, I will need help deciding on new wheels/tires for when I get a lift kit.

Most likely going to a 6" lift, so any help on the best combo for that would be appreciated.
