        Go Kart

        Finally have a "go kart"! Wiring of all the stock Pontiac stuff was much more difficult than I expected, but (with a dealer's rep helping), I now have all the stuff working (HVAC, On Star, XM radio, air bags, door and window controls, etc.). The 3800 s.c. with the headers and pulley upgrade is really strong. I ordered an exhaust from EBay which was small enough to fit the limited space. By dumb luck, the thing sounds fantastic, not too loud, a low growl. Next task is to finish off the interior and paint. Hope to be done by the end of the summer.

            Finally got the interior done. Busted the budget! As has been recommended on this site, when you do a budget with your best estimate of costs, double it! I used all Alcan tara suede on the interior, ordered two yards at $110/yard....not enough so I ordered another yard....not enough so I ordered a fourth yard. Have just a little left over. With the suede and a few carbon fiber trim pieces, I have about $1,000 in the interior upholstery, excluding the seats. Overall, I am happy with the results.

            The go-cart is completely ready to go....everything works....runs great. Anyone working on door hinges, don't make the same mistake I made. I installed the doors and shocks, welded in the hinges.....all with the stock Fiero tires and wheels. Fitted the large wheels and tires.....not enough clearance......had to cut the hinges out and redo the whole thing! Cost me about three days labor.

            Ready for final sanding and paint......hopefully, it will be on the road by the beginning of winter.

                Great work!!

                Have you thought of reshaping the headrests to look less square and better match the lines of the roll bar?

                  Done at last! The car is complete and on the road! Painted in my garage with the very expensive Lambo orange. Worked out well. Constructed a two-piece removable hardtop, not completely waterproof, but you can wash the car without getting the inside wet. All the Pontiac GTP stuff is working…..the airbags, HVAC system, heads-up display, on star, etc. The V-6 with small pulley and headers provides plenty of power for this car. Now that I’m done, I will probably sell it and move on to something else, possibly a Vaydor. I enjoy building more than driving.

                          How much are you looking to get out of it? I'm in the market for another lamborghini replica but I'm only trying to spend around 25k. Thanks o.m if interested

                            I've quoted two other guys a price of $30,000. May put it on Ebay in a few months. Not really too motivated to sell although $27,000 would motivate me!

                              Looking good. Do you have an overheating issue?
