Default My ezgo build (on air)

So I finally got enough along on the cart to start a build. I work at a stereo shop and when times are slow and I'm between customer's vehicles, I have been slowly working on this newly acquired cart. It's an ezgo txt and that's about all I know. The vin plate was painted over and I can't find anything else with a date on it. Seems to be a DCS cart because of the location of the f and r switch and it having a run/tow switch. And it's pre-2001 because of the older style steering. I picked it up for $800 and I quickly found out that I got royally screwed over. It's got some frame rot and the battery tray is toast. The batteries and electronics are good but it Ned's a lot of factory parts. I didn't really know what I was looking for when I first inspected. I've learned a lot in the past month or so since we bought it. Well anyway onto the pics.

Here it is at work








I started tearing it apart






I found a golf cart shop/ezgo dealer that's only like 25 minutes from the house. They are super cool and let me get a take off body for $75. And they gave me a sweater basket with all the brackets for free!



And heres where I found the reason why the steering wheel would flex up and down





And the steering that's probably gonna give me the biggest problem when I lower it on air shocks

We loaded it up and took it to the car wash to blow off the years of dirt and neglect



Looks alil better cleaned up



I pulled the front suspension off. Plans are to Z the crossmember to locate the spindles higher



Started treating the frame with some primer



And here's what I got done today. I got the rusted corners plated



This coming week the plan is to get the battery tray built and the crossmember sectioned

Nice progress. There's several guys who have bagged their carts. Search for them in the On Road section if you need references. Monkey1 is the first name that comes to mind.

Yeah I've read thru monkey-1's and also Hotcats. They were very thorough and very informative in their threads. I learned a few great ideas from them and I'm sure I'll be asking them more things. I'm familiar with air suspension as a whole if you couldn't already tell by the Mazda in the background lol

Haha only reason I have is because it's been slow at work. I'm sure once it comes down to buying parts I'm gonna slow down some

I like the drop axle you made. I considered something similar but narrowing it a couple inches so I could tuck some cool wheels. I haven't had time to dig in that much so I flipped the leaves instead.

Yeah the thought had crossed my mind about narrowing it while I was cutting on it. I wish I had my wheels now so I could use them for the mocking. Hopefully I can find something decent looking in a 12x6 in a 2+4 offset
