They're GC-2, the OE golf cart hold downs are cheap and readily available. Let the Club Car engineers do the math.

It's not OCD, it's craftsmanship. It's what I come to Pirate and build threads like yours for.

Nice work!

I've used all thread and pieces of wood as well. Even a section of a broken hockey stick for my RV conversion. No need to get fancy.

sweet build

If the batteries are mounted securely, there is no need to worry about anything grounding out. If it bothers you that much, you could always dip or shrink wrap your metal bracket.

Agreed, but if something does come loose, there is zero room for error. Hardwood or plastic i think is the answer. Looking at the golf cart ones they are all plastic.

OK ill take opinions here too, heater intake (its a webasto/espar), currently it just sticks below the floor. Do I need to pipe it further down? I was thinking maybe adding a 90 to it aiming backwards so no road spray gets in, but its in a pretty protected spot.

what about just capping it with a louvered intake with the louvers facing rear?

there's a pretty big selection.
some that are just stainless mesh to keep the bugs and rodents out.

a 90 probably isn't a bad idea, but for sure it will need something over the end to keep out the critters.

I prefer stuff from shit laying around the shop. It's less I have to clean up or find a place to store it.

Cool thanks, mine was used, so I didn't get any of the correct bits for it. I did get the exhaust pipe, and its installed and done.

Final wall panel went in. Was planning two pieces.... Did it in one instead so my hole was off a bit. Trim will cover it. Second dinette bench is in. I am thinking I may pull it back out and shrink it another 1/2"....



The UPS guy must love me.... And I have a very forgiving wife for letting me pile parts in the house. Thats the tank for the heater, 3 gallons, will be mounted outside.


Poop tank and parts are in.


Tried this floor, not doing it for me... It was the only "grey ish" one that was in stock at HD. Will see what else I can find.

Yeah those are vinyl planks. I am looking for the stick together ones though, not the click.

And yes we are headed to lumber liquidators tonight.

Wife has informed me we will be taking the truck out camping this weekend. I got some work to do!

Fuck am I getting tired!

Underlayment going down. Green and red is the same stuff, I just had a piece of the green left and it fit just right there.


Here is where I quit last night. Found some flooring we liked finally. Its a vinyl plank with a "foam" core. Claims to be water proof.
