3 DIY Golf Cart Projects For Fall

DIY Golf Cart ProjectsEven though we're lucky enough not to feel the worst effects of winter here in often-sunny South Carolina, things still get colder and many of our customers find themselves putting their golf carts into storage through December, January, and February. However, just because it's too chilly to take your golf cart out for a spin, that doesn't mean you can't still keep it well-maintained and even add on a new accessory or two this fall before the temperatures drop!

We've put together a short list of three great DIY golf cart projects you can work on this winter while your golf cart is in storage. Once you bring it out again in the spring, you'll feel like you're driving a whole new cart on the beach, while you get in some time at the golf course, or even just tooling around the neighborhood.

Project #1: Keep Warm With a Golf Cart Enclosure

This one is perfect for those DIY-ers who want to be able to keep using their golf cart throughout the coldest months of the year. E-Z-Go enclosures (which we have available as a customization option or to purchase and install on your own!) are easy to install, and you'll stay protected from chilly wind, cold rain, or even just the dust or sand whipped up when it hasn't rained in a while. Enclosures are available for both two and four passenger golf carts, and provide high-quality protection and durability all year long.

Check out this how-to video on E-Z-Go's Youtube channel to learn more about DIY installation!

Project #2: Add Speakers & Audio Upgrades

Available Wet Sounds sound bar gives you top-quality sound, with durable speakers that keep up with you no matter what kind of environment you're riding around in. Bluetooth connectivity and flexible mounting let you play music from just about any of your favorite devices. Give us a call to ask about availability and advice on your DIY installation at any time!

Project #3: Shock Absorbers

While many of our Bad Boy, E-Z-Go, Tomberlin, and Cushman options already include top-of-the-line shock absorbers meant for those tougher environments, sometimes our customers are looking for a little extra. Installing your own shock absorbers may help you maintain a smooth ride even in hilly or forested areas. This is an especially great project for those who use golf carts around the farm or to head out hunting or on outdoor adventures.

Front and rear shocks do need replacing over time as well, especially when subjected to heavy use. If you've noticed your golf cart's ride becoming increasingly uncomfortable, worn-out shocks may be the issue. If you need new shocks but you're not exactly sure if you want to take the project on, give us a call! Our Service and Parts department is made up of experienced, quality technicians happy to help you stay comfortable on your cart!

Whether You Love or Hate to DIY, Garrett's Has You Covered.

While many of our customers enjoy taking on a project like new shock absorbers or adding in high-quality speakers and audio, we're also happy to have our technicians do the installation and add in whatever customizations you require. We love taking on customized options or custom paint jobs, so just give us a call at any of our locations and we'll show you what we can do!
