We are back with more progress on the SC Carts Club Car Precedent stretch cart. You will see in this post building a stretch takes a lot of work, especially when you are building jigs to make this cart repeatable.
Check out the fabrication progress on this stretched Club Car Precedent!!!
This is where our Precedent stretch is different than the factory kit. We have decided to use rec tube for the cross members.
Here you can see we have drilled the cross members and also drilled right through the frame.
Now we have the cross members secured to the Club Car Precedent limo frame!
With the main cross members complete we tackled the front end. This electric Precedent is going to be one bad buggy!
We opted for HD leaf springs on the rear. It only makes sense for a buggy like this.
We installed the electric rear end in to the Precedent HD springs, and as you can see we have added a 3″ lift kit to the rear of this Club Car project.
A 14″ wheel and tire package round of this electric cruiser nicely.
You really see how big this “golf cart” is now that it is coming together. That is an 8′ table it is sitting on.
This stretch Club Car looks awesome on the ground!
It looks even more at home outside on the gravel.
Alright, with the main frame built it is time to address the additional front seat, or lack thereof in this case. The factory front seat kit does the trick with regards to function, but we believe a little SC Cart touch here will make a world of difference.
Here you can see we have most of the tabs tacked on to our seat frame jig.
We carefully cut and fit all the pieces to ensure a nice factory Club Car finish.
With the frame all TIG welded it was time to pull it out of the jig.
Hey look at that 2 the same!!! That is the beauty of having a jig.
Next it was on to making the seat support, again we wanted to change this from the factory setup.
Here is the first portion of the Club Car Precedent front seat frame tack welded.
With it tacked it was time to test the Precedent seat, and it fit beautifully!
Another angle of the seat frame. It is now ready for a couple filler plates and a final weld and then we can attach it to the main legs we welded previously.
OK guys that’s it for the progress on this electric Club Car Precedent stretch for this week. It’s really coming together now. Come back next week so you can see the progress!!!
Check it out from the start if you haven’t already!!!
