Golf Cart Body

To change your golf cart body, it can be painted, customized and thankfully, repaired.

Golf Cart Bodies

golf cart bodies, club car body

The body of our golf cart has had its share of stress.

Between teenagers taking it to school (yes, there actually is a golf cart parking lot at the high school) and riding it all over town on weekends, there have been a few mishaps that have caused some body damage, scratches and dents.

Of course, no one knows how the damage got there :)

Golf Cart Paint

Scratches on your golf cart can be handled a couple of different ways.

Depending on how deep the scratches are, they can sometimes be polished out. Deeper scratches will need a fiber glass plastic filler. Matching the paint color of your golf cart body just to touch up scratches can be a problem.

1. If the cart was previously painted with a non-factory color it is hard to find the right match

2. If your paint job has faded, the touch up paint will be brighter and more noticeable and won't match

For $12 you can order a touch up jar of paint on line and give it a try.

Club Car Golf Car Body

Would you like to have a new Club Car golf cart body for almost the same price as a new paint job? I sure would. Instead of painting your golf cart, you might want to consider a new body. One of our local Club Car dealers, provides a new Club Car golf car body at almost the same price as painting the old one.

club car precedent

The front of my Club Car has some cracks and damage, especially around the headlights so it needs more than new paint. I have owned a 1987 Club Car for 15 years. Had it painted just a few years ago.

Now, there is some body damage in the front with some good cracks around the headlights (of course no one in my family knows how they got there :).

So I found out that instead of having the body repaired and then painted, I can simply order a new Club Car body - for almost the same price as a new paint job.

There are two different Club Car models - The DS which is pictured here or the Club Car Precedent which has a more rounded front cowl. You can select a new DS Club Car body in one of 9 different colors. They are:

1. Red

2. Burgundy

3. Navy Blue

4. Royal Blue

5. Silver

6. Black

7. Green

8. Yellow

9. White

You can also buy golf cart body parts, such as the front cowl -painted white or beige, or primed and ready to be painted.

The other option for a front cowl body part is to buy it with the headlights already cut out.

The price range is from around $290 to $325 plus shipping.

Custom Golf Cart Bodies

Golf cart custom bodies come in a wide variety of looks. They can be hand painted or customized with decals.

Depending on what kind of look you want, you could check out the decals first. If you don't see anything that appeals to you - then go for a hand painted job. Custom Golf Cart Bodies

Golf Cart Decals

golf cart decals

Turn your regular, plain, boring cart into a Jimmie Johnson race car with the touch a few number 48 decals.

Or maybe you have a favorite NFL team that you like to identify with. Around here SEC decals sport the front of lots of golf carts.

Golf Cart Skins

If you want something more than a plain, solid color golf cart body, you might want to consider golf cart skins. Golf cart skins can give your cart a custom look without the cost of a custom paint job - which is alot less than a regular paint job.

You can choose to wrap the entire cart in skins (for those who want a camouflage look) but will need a friend to help you. The graphics are applied directly to the surface of your golf cart using a peel & stick application.

A kit will consist of several large sheets of graphic film. There are lots of different design options and it is much less expensive than a custom paint job.

A full kit runs around $350.

Golf Cart Body Kits

If your front cowl or rear body has some dents and scratches or worse yet, some serious body damage, replace the body with a golf cart body kit.

It includes the front cowl and rear body and often the front and rear light sets as well. Select the paint color you want and for a lot less than a new golf cart, you can have yours looking like new. Golf Cart Body Kits

Cleaning Golf Cart Bodies

I don't know how these black marks appeared on my golf cart, but it happens.

Cleaning scuff marks off of golf cart bodies is easy when you find the right fiberglass cleaner - and I just did.

Find out what it is and how it worked to clean up the scuff marks on my Club Car body. Golf Cart Bodies

Golf Cart Tops

golf cart tops

Most people appreciate having a golf cart roof to keep them dry if it rains or shaded from the hot sun.

There are universal golf cart tops and customized ones.

A top can be added at any time or you can replace a cracked and leaking top with a new one like I did on my 1987 Club Car.

Find out more about sizes, colors, and customization here: Golf Cart Tops

Golf Cart Windshield

golf cart windshield

A golf cart windshield comes either with a hinge so that it can be folded down or as a one piece unit.

The polycarbonate can crack, get scratched, or become foggy - in which case you will need to replace it.

Although not golf cart make or model specific, the replacement windshield you buy depends on the size of the struts that are holding it in place.

Lifted Golf Cart

A lifted golf cart is a customization that can be done to most golf carts - it does exactly that .... lifts the golf cart so that there is higher clearance for offroading and going over rugged terrain.

The extra height isn't needed for getting around on smooth, paved golf cart paths, but who says any customization of a golf cart is needed - but it sure looks cool. Lifted Golf Cart
