Well after a nice break on Paradise Island in the Bahamas we are right back at it. With so many custom SC Carts on order the blog is going to be a busy place over the next several months, your not going to miss a thing.
We pick up right where we left off on this mean Club Car Precedent!
We start this build off by drilling the frame in preparation for a cool touch!
Here is what the holes were for. Custom green LED under lights, this will set the cart apart at night!
Here is the additional wiring that needed to be ran for LED lights.
With the dash out we decided to upgrade the standard pull lever lights to a small rocker switch. This is the same switch we used for the LED’s.
Here it is installed, the Precedent dash is super clean with these rocker switches. We still have a horn button to add to the dash but this gives you the idea of how clean it looks.
Our customer had a last minute change and decided to upgrade to our SC Carts Speedster motor. So we took out the stock motor and will install the new Speedster motor as soon as it arrives. With the over sized tires and Speedster motor, this monster will be closing in on a 30+ mph top speed!
We also replaced the rear underbody support as it was cracked.
Our customer also wanted the addition of front and rear seat belts. Here you can see we tied the seat belts into the main underbody attach points by using a piece of aluminum flat bar. This is also captured on the back side as well.
Here we installed the rear Precedent underbody.
Next we moved onto prepping the main body of this Club Car beast.
Into the paint booth to lay down the primer sealer.
We then laid down the black paint for this awesome Precedent. After laying down the paint we let it dry and then wet sanded it.
With the body wet sanded we laid down another coat of black paint and then hit the entire body with several coats of clear coat. This incredible rich gloss is what we ended up with!
After the body had dried we brought into the shop and installed it on the cart.
Next we drilled the rear holes for the lights and pulled the factory wiring through.
After a quick test to ensure the lights were working properly, we installed them.
No resort cruiser would be complete without a folding rear seat kit.
Here are the support brakes loosely bolted in place.
We then moved onto installing the foot plate and the folding upper deck.
It was then time to install the backrest support, you can see the seat belts are now all installed using the factory hardware.
Here we are adding silicon to each hole before we install the rear seats. This will form a watertight seal for when our customer has the flat deck out in the rain. If you don’t do this you could end up with a water logged rear seat.
Here are the awesome rear seats installed and the seat belts clipped in place so they don’t flop around at high speeds!
We then installed the front seats as well to finish of the seat portion of the build. These look amazing!
Here’s a shot of the cart so you can see the seats and the blacked out cart, look how mean this thing is looking!
That’s a wrap for this week! Come back next week to see the completion of this animal! Soon it will be off to it’s new home and staking it’s territory being one of the baddest Precedents around!
