    The graphics look great, Jen!!!

    Ya know....looking at the cart without the rear body on it....I really LIKE the way the rear tires have the fenders like that......hmmmmmm.....Im getting ideas....and thats never a good thing.

    Anyway.....I replaced my batteries and in the process, somehow messed up my voltage reducer. I wired my lights to 2 batteries so there are running on 16volts instead of 12volts...wow, are they BRIGHT!!! It will probably cause my bulbs to burn out quicker, but I think it would be fine the way it is for a while....I need to look on ebay for a cheap reducer, though...I guess I'll go ahead and rig my speaker amp to it as well while Im at it, that extra little 12v battery is a pain to keep charged. I finally got the diamond plate peddles in and put them on as well. Im so ready for a camping trip!!!!!

    Just to set all you folks straight...it is burnt metallic orange pearl...;):cool2:

    It has too much red in it to be sissy UT(ennessee) orange and not enough brown in it to be UT(exas) orange. It is the perfect Auburn orange and it took three weeks of my temper to have them mix it correctly. My last cart was the unfortunate sissy UT orange and I was not going to let it happen again....:laughing:

    It is looking very sweet out in the sun. Pictures unfortunately do not do it justice. The top (which I do not have pictured yet) looks like navy colored glass.

    We had to stop tonight because the mosquitoes were draining too much of our blood this evening. Here is what it looked like about 30 minutes before we stopped.





    As you can see in the background, Pete's old body is there. If there is anyone interested, he has it listed on Craigslist on the Treasure Coast, FL section under RV's. If you know a Gator type person who is in need, it needs to leave my garage!;)

    ok, we had to stop because the finale of Lost is coming on and my work partner quit on me...so...we covered the new bessie up again but before we did, we took some more pictures of our progress...we are getting there...

    the neighbors were laughing at us because both Chris and I were jumping up and down that we have the lights working again and the reverse switch is back on again...(I think it was the dancing personally, lol)

    muskey mickey in orange is now on the windshield


    seats are on, most of the wiring (with the exception of the stereo) is done, and we are waiting on the last coat of paint and clear on the underside of the roof, which should be done for wednesday installation (we have plenty to do until then)


    getting some of the graphics on, some still need to be cut


    we ended up replacing a lot of the bolts, just as a safety precaution and because we changed the body...I am not one for having things come off during flight;)
