  1. Hey guys! Just made my intro thread here (since I've decided to focus on my golf game, more than golf carts these days - which I custom build in my spare time). But had to search the forum to see what golf cart chatter was going on! I built (flipped) 7 carts last year. Usually buy mid 2000s (2003-2008) carts for around $1,500 - spend $1,500-2,000 on mods and then sell them for $1,500-$2,000 in profit. It's more of a hobby than a business, but I definitely think the OP was smart to get an older cart and modify it. You can make them look GREAT. What @downlowkey said is spot on. Rear seat is a must. I do want to add that I used to get my rear seats from Buggies Unlimited... but I have more recently been finding some killer deals on Golf Cart Accessories (rear seats, wheels and tires, etc.) from the Golf Cart Tire Supply. They have a good quality rear seat kit for $278.95 that folds into a cargo bed with diamond plating - and comes with a free safety grab bar. Same seat used to cost me $359.99 from Buggies. My latest build picture is attached Good luck with the continued build! PM me if you want any free cart advice
  2. Made an intro in the Southwest thread as well, but since I am still in Illinois for the next month or two, I thought I would say hello here! How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? 16 years, but I only go out once or twice a summer. What do you love about golf? I love golf carts, and have built many custom ones. I figure it's time to start taking this sport more seriously so I can go out with my buddies rather than just building their carts. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Well made forum. Looks high quality. Easy to navigate. Large member base! Don't know any other spies. Where are you from? What is your home course? Chicago (Schaumburg... but currently leaving this place for Arizona!). No home course. Have played several around here though, including Medinah and River Forest Country Club. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Winter here SUCKS! What do you do for a living? Car wash industry. How’d you pick your user name? Who doesn't love John Candy? Haha. The big guy was gone too soon.
