Golf Cart Running

    Last week my parents came down to visit and I spend a good part of the time working on my golf cart with my dad.  We finished the wiring and thanks to Galen, we picked up some good looking skins off of craigslist. We had a little trouble at first getting it moving.  It went down the hill just fine, but was underpowered going back up the hill.  Fortunately I brought my dad for the test drive and he worked just as well as the motor to get us back to the shop.  Discovered that a few of the batteries were a bit under powered and had to use a different charger to get them up to where the cart charger would charge them.  Apparently if the voltage is too low on the batteries, the charger will not charge them back up.  Anyway, here are a few shots of the cart.  Still need to do some work on the interior.  The last guy tried to paint the hood camo so I tried to scrape off as much as I could and sand blast it a little.  I figure that paint will fix the rest.  The floor mat needs a little work as well.  Haven’t decided if a rear seat kit would be worth the expense.  I don't think it will make a difference on the price when I sell it.  I also need to recover the seats so they match.
