Default 1966 ish Pargo Three Wheeler

Hello, all, figured I'd finish the buils before joining and posting.
Long story short, the wife wanted this old three wheeler fixed up, and it was a flimsy excuse to gas swap the club car we had. Short story long, it was her grandfather's, he passed away in 05 and it sat since he got sick in 04, in the woods behind her parent's house.

Few pics of it in its former final resting place.

The old batteries froze, broke, and there was very little left of that whole section of the frame.

Some busted up fiberglass but luckily solid enough to glue back together.

Long story short I used everything I could off the Club Car, and was smart enough to not cut wires lol. Welded in brackets, mounted the rear end/motor...
Got lucky and the whole front end came free after liberal spraying of Kroil and getting grease everywhere it was supposed to be.

Had my middle helper help me pressure wash it... the pressure washer was too loud so we had to do it with it off... took awhile lol. Cleaned up pretty good, and my wife wanted it redone in the polka dot pattern her grandfather had on it.

Needless to say we named it Nancy after finding that under the front. Tiger paw patch for the fiberglass, some body filler, then it was paint time. Found round 3 inch masking tape circles and went to town.

A fresh coat of paint makes everything look good.

Didn't remember to take pictures as I rewired it but, its all just redoing what was on the club car. Some fab work for the throttle return spring as well, I mounted the club car speed controller up under the front where the pargo one was, and used the club car return spring with a fabbed bracket. Only wires I had to lengthen was for that.
