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 Body Cleaner and Polisher

Cart Shine is a favorite product I use to clean, polish, and then protect the body of your golf cart. It can remove tough oil-based stains, water marks, and spots. Use it shine up your wheels and polish your windshield as well.

An added benefit is that it leave a protective soil resistant coating.  Just spray on and wipe off with a clean soft cloth.

Golf Cart Body 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. Find out more here:

Golf Cart Tops

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

There are universal golf cart tops and customized ones.

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 Body

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.

Cleaning a Golf Cart Body

The body of your golf cart will eventually get some scuff marks that plain old water and soap will not be able to remove. They might be black scuff marks on the fiberglass or from tree or brush scrapes. Cleaning scuff marks off of golf cart bodies is easy when you find the right fiberglass cleaner - and I just did.

The directions stated to "spray directly onto the mark from a distance of at least 8 inches." Which I did. Then you need to allow the spray gel to work for several seconds. I probably waited 30 seconds or so.  It did help to restore some shine to my 1987 Club car. It also says that the spray provides protection from UV damage - such as fading and the wax finish helps to prevent scuff marks.

Always use a soft cloth on fiberglass bodies. I save all of my old white cotton t-shirts for cleaning my golf cart. After gently wiping off the area that was sprayed with water, the fiberglass looks as good as new.

I also use a spray on body cleaner and polish called Cart Shine.

This product removes oil-based stains, water marks, and spots and then shines and polishes your body and brings back the shine to a faded finish.  Plus it leaves a protective coating. It can be used on your golf cart fenders, windshield, wheels, tires, and headlights.

Spray onto a wet surface and with your cloth wipe of the dirt, grime or stains and then polish with a clean dry cloth.
