Well I had wanted to snag a golf cart before the last BugO and I did. The week before BugO I was able to take the thing apart and clean it up some. I did a quick rattle can job on it with some John Deere Blitz Black and then also painted some other pieces with some army drab green. I did a quick seat cover job with some army canvas material.

After BugO I knew that I wanted to redo it again and make it a little nicer. I was able to score some 12" Ford Think wheels and then I mounted some new 19x8x12 tires on them.

So I had a blast with the damn thing at BugO but knew I wanted to make some changes ! With no top on the damn thing it is real easy to just get cooked out there on the black top. So I knew that I wanted to make some sort of top for it. Also there is always more than 1 person that wants to hitch a ride so I decided to try and make a rear seat area for 1 or 2 more people. So this is what I have some come up with so far. I still need to weld the whole thing up. I need to had some handles for the rear seat area and 2 grab handles for the front area. Possibly some headlight tabs and some misc gussets.

You might want to add some more bracing to the seat back. I can see someone ( like Doug) grabbing onto the top of the seat for one reason or another and busting it off.
