This kit is an easy conversion kit. This kit has been installed on a
club cart ds model golf cart and completed in two weeks by us working
part- time on the project. Note: the ds cart body is the same
from 1989 up to present; however in 2003 the iq model ds version was
introduced and the running time was greatly increased. We recommend
using the 2003 and newer ds body club cart with the iq computer as the
donor vehicle for this mini roadster project.
We suggest the
donor be slightly damaged because the body panels will not be used on
the finished kit and you will save a lot of money by using a damaged
donor cart. All unused body parts can be resold as scrap or on
ebay as reusable body parts. We sell slightly damaged donor carts at
The stock wheelbase of the ds cart is 65.5" and the wheelbase for the
finished mini roadster is 120.5". You will extend the frame from
the round bar under the dash area by 60.5" and then add 10" as a bumper
guard that extends from the front frame out in front of the tires with
a plate on each end of each bumper guard. See photos for details.

Cut the center floor board and add 10'' in length to the center floor board area of the cart. See photos for details.

the batteries to fit. The batteries will sit inside the frame rails.
