You will need these materials and tools to build the roof of your homemade golf cart.
DIY Golf Cart Roof
Gearing up for golf season? If you have a golf cart but don’t want to shell out for a roof, we can help. The following step-by-step guide will show you how to build your own custom golf cart roof. It’s easy, cheap, and fun! Go on, give it a try. You might just get hooked!
The following materials will be needed to complete your golf cart roof. Be sure you have all items on hand before beginning assembly:
Cutting The Pieces
First, measure your roof and make a note of how many pieces you’ll need. Each piece should be 3 feet long—you can use either 3-foot wooden planks or metal beams that have been cut down to size—and each one will need two cross-supports every four feet (to create an X) for support. Cut all pieces using either a table saw, circular saw, or handsaw. Then set up your jig on a flat surface to drill holes for your bolts: One hole at each end of every board (except for in between cross-supports), equidistant from each edge and no further than 1 inch away from any side.
Installing The Roof On The Frame
A homemade golf cart roof can be installed by placing a top plate across from each end of your frame and using an angle iron to connect them. You will then place cross braces, and load-bearing supports before installing your decking or plywood on top. With that done, you are ready to install your lights, seats, brakes, mirrors, and radio. The coolest part about making a homemade golf cart roof is that it’s easier than you think!
