I had spoke with Shane at The Whoolie Shop a while back to see if he had any LED kits that would work for my golf cart. He asked me to get some measurements and pick a color and after getting him that info he told me it would be no problem he said 10 strips would be perfect for the job. Shortly after working out the details I had a nice little package with the LED kit.

The kit was well put together with almost everything you need to do the install. The LED's have 3m tape and the kit comes with 3m adhesion promoter which is a nice touch. The reason I said almost is for my golf cart the way I had to run some of the wires I ended up needing about 10ft of wire to help some of the LED's reach where i wanted all my connections to terminate, this could have been my fault but since this was a custom kit I figured it would probably be needed so I already had some wire on standby.

I read through the instructions a couple times just to make sure i wasn't going to screw up they are very well written and even have pictures for those of us who don't like reading instructions. The best tip in the instructions and what I believe was the most important part was to wire one of the LED strips to a separate battery like a 9v well since i didn't have one around I used a power wheels battery which was worked out although I would recommend a 9v for ease of use. Once wired up you can figure out the proper placement of the LED's I would recommend doing this somewhere where you can get it a bit dark so you can figure out the glow pattern. My golf cart is lifted 4 inches and runs 22 inch Kenda Klaws so i have a little potential of rubbing some spots with the tires so I had to take that in account mounting the lights but there was a good spot for 9 of the 10 strips. I did end up with 1 leftover strip I am debating putting it under my dash to light the floor board but i am not 100% sure i want to do that yet. I mounted one strip under each wheel well 2 under each side in the middle of the cart and one in the middle of the rear. I was going to do the last one under the middle of the front but with the bumper I have I couldn't find a good place that would keep it from just having a bunch of shadows.

I have had the kit installed for about a week now and really like them. When figuring out placement of the strips it looked like they would be bright but until I got them all wired together it ended up being much brighter and better looking than I imagined. I can actually drive around at night with just the LED's if i go slow since the ones in the front wheel wells project the light out front about 8 ft. I haven't taken the cart anywhere other than around my property but my Neighbor saw me riding around the driveway and came over to ask about the lights, he was very impressed with the way they looked and how bright they are.

Although it has only been a week I am very happy with the kit and would recommend it to anyone wanting to add a little something to set them apart from others. The kit is very easy to install, is well made, and really adds to the coolness factor of your ride.

The lights are still working great and are still my favorite part of the cart. They really get some attention.
