We have had a busy week and this cart has progressed along very well. The wheel and tire package are fantastic.
First order of business for this buggy was to inspect the front end in preparation for the lift kit.
We removed the stock spindles and inspected the bushings and tie rod ends at the same time.
After the inspection and cleaning that front end was ready for the new drop spindles.
Here are the 6″ drop spindles, the front end looks practically brand new.
Here you can see we have cleaned and inspected on of the factory hubs.
Now both have been cleaned and inspected. They are in virtually new condition. Ready to be installed on the drop spindles.
Here is the completed front end, ready for wheels and tires.
Wheels and tires are what we have added!!! They look great, check out the height and size difference from the front to rear.
We really had to jack the rear end up to get it to sit level with this monster of a cart.
With the back end up in the air it was time to preform our standard rear end and brake inspection.
One side inspected and cleaned, again they turned out like new.
Second side cleaned and inspected. Good to go!
Brake drums are cleaned and re-installed.
That looks good! Now the cart is sitting level with the front and rear tire package installed.
It doesn’t matter how many of these we do. the ground clearance always amazes me.
This cart needs to see in the dark also, on with the headlight package.
In case the owner runs into any real animals while out shooting clays he is prepared to take a hit.
The bush bar looks great, we also like how it doesn’t interfere with the front light package.
Our customer wanted a bit of shine to his ride, so we installed the polished column cover.
Once we installed the steering wheel adapter you could see we had a spacing problem.
To fix the column and wheel adapter space issue we made a custom wheel spacer.
Here is the spacer installed at the bottom of the column.
Issue fixed! We also used a spacing material so the column was a press fit, this will eliminate any noise rattles.
We then installed a very nice custom steering wheel.
Here you can see the steering package all complete, looking very sharp.
The customer requested the seats be custom re skinned, but for now we just put the stock seat back on to give you an idea of the look.
This cart is looking really good!
Again we leave the project here until next “UPLOAD TUESDAY” you can always check out our Facebook page during the rest of the week to see whats going on around the shop.
Have a look at the beginning of this cool electric buggy build!
