Default Golf Cart Improvement Ideas

Hi there ... I am looking to hear what improvements / enhancements you have made to your golf cart (please include golf cart manufacturer).
Sample improvements may include, noise reduction, golf glove holder, grocery package holder, how to mount a license plate, etc.

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

Just to remind you. Some things are borderline offensive.

Get two peel and stick, battery powered LED lights and attach them to underside of the roof of your cart to make an inside light for each seat. I use these often. Most will require additional sticking power or they come down. I took some peel and stick foam and attached four pieces around the edge of the light to give it added strength.

Got the plug in power attachment installed, and also bought an inexpensive plug in to allow for phone charging in the cart.

Coleman golf cart heater works great on small bottles of propane. Keeps it cozy this time of year.

I put in some interior lighting, a secondary accessory plug for phone charging, and car stereo I can plug my i-pod into or listen to sirius radio. I need to find a real good loud horn since the horn that came with it is a real joke. It sounds like the horn on a kids toy car.

I needed new batteries recently and I was informed of a new battery called the Ranger. It gives you 160 minutes of operating time. I can now go over 50 miles on a charge. The cost was a bit more, but I avoided having to have the cart altered for an 8 six volt conversion.
Best thing I ever did for my cart.
