Blokart Facelift


So I have two Blokarts and one of them was getting really crusty. Actually I bought it this way from a seller who misrepresented it several years ago and it was full of rust. :no: I decided to take my beat up and rusty one, the one that never really went out to play, and stripped it and had it sandblasted, powdercoated and a new floor made out of diamond plate. Now this one is going to have some nice upgrades and become my new fave...

Got about $85 bucks in it including the powdercoating, a few new pieces of hardware, stainless rivets and new diamond plate floor. Not bad for a facelift! Hoping SANTA WIFE delivers a new big foot fork so I can put a barrow tire on the front for better softish sand runs....

Original Crusty Version:

That is a serious improvement. I like the yellow for contrast too. :bigok:

Yea, I thought it would stand out on the beach. This one turned out so cool that I'm thinking of doing the same thing to my "good" one. Its got a few small blemishes, doesn't need a face lift yet but I think a safety orange or red or bright green maybe would be cool.

You know if the shipping is too much to send it back after NABX, you could sell it to me and save the hassle;-)
