Golf cart modifications

Club Car golf cart back storage painting

old photo of 2 years ago
It's been over 2 years since we first modified the Club Car golf cart with a rear DIY hauling bed.

The original plywood crumbled away recently and our helper Bradley had some great ideas on improving the structure in addition to the front storage box.

We decided to go with a high quality paint and primer combination that was a little pricey at just over 30 dollars, but should be worth it if it's as good as the lady at the store claims.

I don't know if the hardware stores have it out there, but my local Ace Hardware has a cart out in front of their store everyday with mis-mixed/mistake gallon- and quart-size paint for $6 and $2, respectively. All sorts of brands in varying colors, but my favorite indoor paint is the Benjamin Moore Aura line, which normally retails for $50/gallon! If you don't care about color, it might be worth asking if they have something like this in the back/storage area of the store if you don't see it in plain sight.

Mitsy --- We always look for the mistake paints, but it seems like lately there never is any! I guess people have been picking up what they have mixed.
