We recently purchased a 1993 Club Car golf cart. It will be used when we go camping. When we got it there were no headlights, or tail lights. Being of the skilled nature I decided I would take care of this far cheaper than purchasing an actual light kit designed for the golf cart.
First I went to Harbor Freight. I purchased a $12 pair of fog lights. I also purchased 2 LED marker lights. Once I got home it took all of about 1 hour to install the lights correctly.
First I mounted the fog lights where I wanted them. Next I mounted the On/Off switch where I wanted it. Once I got that done I started the rear LED lights. I took a pen and traced around the LED light on the fiberglass where I wanted them installed. Then I took a dremel and cut the area out. Once that was done I took the rubber boot for the LED lights and inserted it into the fiberglass.
Now for the wiring. I ran a dedicated ground from one of the batteries in the 36volt system to the front of the cart. I then ran a dedicated power from one of the batteries to the On/Off switch. From the switch a wire went to one fog light, and then to the other fog light. For the rear electric I ran a lead from one of the fog lights power side to the power side of one of the rear LED lights. I then also ran the ground to one of the LED lights. I then jumped a wire from one of the LED lights to the other.
When the switch is on the LED lights, and the fog lights come on. The hardest part was getting the rear LED lights perfectly lined up.
The last modification I made was to put a small toggle switch in so that the cart will not work without the switch being on. This was installed between the key switch, and the cart. Even if the key switch is on the cart will not go because the toggle switch must be in the correct place. This protects the cart from being “Played” with by kids. (You know who you are…>!!!!!)
I have often asked my wife what kind of clothes she would wear in case I decided to go out and purchase some for her. She is very picky, and won’t wear just anything. Each year I happen to see women wearing equestrian clothing around the county fair. Considering I don’t wear womens clothing I don’t know anything about comfort, or what they wear. I asked my wife if riding pants would be comfortable being horse riders wear them. She said that they are designed for riding horses.
With that being said she said that stretch jeans, and spandex are both very similar, and that she would stick to them. I was also further told to stop trying to be a sweet husband, and leave the clothing shopping to her. Knowing that I don’t like shopping I have decided to do exactly what she asks. I will just have to leave shopping for my daughters clothes, my clothes, and her own clothes to my wife.
I just returned from a trip to Petoskey, Michigan. I had to go and help my uncle out with something. While we were there he took me to Johan’s Bakery. They made some excellent doughnuts. We ended up getting to bring a few back with us. We also wen’t to a chocolate store / factory named Kilwins. They had some really good fudge. We took a ride out and around to Harbor Springs because that is where they were originally located. Driving through that area a lot of people were swimming at the beach, and riding bicycles. It seems like a lot of the people up there were wearing what appeared to look like wrestling gear, but it was in fact just shorts and a top.
We ate dinner at a place called Garfields. It is similar to a Chilis, Fridays, and other restaurants like that. The Holiday Inn we stayed at was very nice, and actually offered a real breakfast instead of a continental breakfast. Most hotels don’t offer the full service.
All in all it was a nice trip. I never said relaxing because we didn’t have much time to do any relaxing. The drive out took us @15 hours each way.
