SC Carts Custom Solar Charging Golf Cart *Part 1*

SC Carts is continually pushing the limits of custom cart innovation, that is why we have teamed up with a leading manufacture in the solar industry to design and produce a solar charging system exclusively for our custom SC Carts.

There are a tremendous amount of benefits with having a solar charging system on your cart, it continually maintains your battery pack which greatly extends the overall life of it.  Also it will extend the range of your electric cart on each charge. Many of our resort customers will benefit greatly as their typical use for their custom cart is to head down to the their boat, or off to the resort pool and then back to their home. With these typically short commutes and then long standing periods the cart is continually charging. Many customers may find that during the sunny periods they vacation they may not have to plug their cart into the grid!

In this build we also feature our new standard length SC Carts roof system. This is the same design that is used in our stretch build, it is just a shorter version of it.

Lets get going!

Here we have the Precedent with it's new 12" wheel and tire package installed after it's complete SC Carts inspection.

There was some sunlight peering in through the shop windows so we couldn't resist rolling the cart outside for a look at the paint in the light.

This SC Carts Precedent looks amazing in the sun, also notice we installed a polished steering column and wheel adapter.
