How We Build the LSV

(Click the images below to enlarge)

After we weld, grind and drill on the Chassis, it goes to the Sand Blaster, then to the Powder Coater. We start the assembly work, such as install the rear end, front end and start the 3 Different wiring harnesses.

Then we fit the Brush Guard Cage to the frame by drilling out the bolt holes and tapping them to a larger size Bolt for more strength. We also use special alloy Stainless Steel 18-8 bolts for this assembly.  This also gives us a chance to see how things are going to fit for final assembly.

Mounting the Curtis/HP Controller and HP Performance Motor allows the wiring to start to have a destination. We have to locate all of the Adel clamps and grommets for any holes we have in the chassis….. Wires and sharp metal edges don’t get along so protection of the wiring harness is very important.

Here we have mounted the DC/DC converter along with the Delta Q Battery Charger, and Fuse Panel. Once you have the destination the wiring is easy and can be put together in a professional way. When we need another DC/DC converter,,,, we just put them back to back on the same bracket and we have just enough room for the wiring harness and Batteries. All of the wiring harnesses are installed in Silicone/Kevlar Conduit for protection of the bundles of wire.

The motor is a HP Performance motor that has 18 HP and 81 Ft. Lbs of torque. The way the motor is hung on the Dana H-12 Rear Differential is not strong enough to withstand the forces exerted on it. Therefore, we are in the process of making up Motor Stands that will attach to the Axle housing and have a saddle for the motor to rest in…. this is necessary because of all of the torque applied to the housing of the differential, and will keep the motor perpendicular to the Differential Housing and parallel to the Axle housings.

We always test out the brackets we make prior to powder coating in case we have to make any changes or modifications. If we make one change …it will cause many other changes down the line.

Here we are wiring up the dash. There are three wiring harness on the vehicle, #1 is the 48/vac harness for the motor and the Curtis Controller, #2 12vdc for the standard functions of the vehicle such as lights, tail lights & brake lights. #3 is a 12vdc for the optional features such as the audio system, sub-woofer and phone jack.

And on the front side of the dash are the controls, Key & Lights, Direction FNR Switch, State of Charge meter, Golf Speed/Street Speed, Driving Light, Toggle push button for Monitor Meter, and Monitor Meter.

Then we mount the Batteries and the body along with the Steering assembly, this is a good time to check bump steer and travel of the suspension for any interference in the movement from Bump to Droop. Setting the Camber and Toe is done in this step so we know the suspension is going to work like it should.

Next we assemble the Brush Cage to the vehicle. Now is when we fit the Oak Orange Crates and other accessories and bracket. Now is when things start looking like they were designed to look.

Making the bumper out of 2” Brushed 316 Stainless Steel tubing has many purposes, like protecting the front of the body, we also have to build additional supports that connect the frame to the suspension and also act as a bumper support on the sides of the vehicle. This size bumper is large enough to allow an antenna to be attached to it for the audio system. And last but not least …..It just looks good the way we attached the bumper to the chassis ….gives the appearance that the bumper is just sitting out there by it’s self.

Now that the Bumper is mounted and secure, we can move on to the sub brush guard and the Driving light to see down the road and in lieu of the decal we would normally need up front. The head lights are for light right around and in front of the vehicle. The Driving light shoots down the road so you can see what’s coming up as well as other motorist will see a Vee from your vehicle. Safety is the most important part.

Talking about Safety...affix a reflective decal on the sides of the vehicle as well as the rear.  Many of the reflectors will make you more visible to others at night time and while driving at night, it’s important to be highly visible.

Adding some Seats from XT Innovation and a D.O.T. Bronze/Winged Windshield add to the comfort of our vehicle. We have had good experience with Crow Racing Harnesses and feel comfortable installing them in our vehicles. The Crow Racing Harness is only a 4 point system, but will keep the driver and passenger inside the vehicle and in position to protect them.

Marine Bose Speakers and a Marine JBL amp and head unit with a MP3 Player jack will keep you in tunes as you roll down the street. The outstanding quality of the Bose speakers is 2nd to none when it comes to Marine and outside speakers, especially since our audio system is tested to Salt water and Harsh Environmental Conditions.

The art work is painted on top of the body so it can be touched up when needed. Any design can be added if the art work is provided …

The Canvas Canopy is fitted to the Brush Cage with Velcro so as to not drill any holes in the Brush Cage and maintain its integrity, and a Sun Visor is mounted in the front of the Brush Cage for the Canvas to wrap around. You can remove the top and the sun visor will stay on the Brush Cage to act as a sun visor when no canvas is used.

Safety Warning signs and LED 3rd Brake Lights light up the rear when you lift off of the gas peddle. Regenerative Braking turns on the brake lights if you touch the brake pedal or are coasting down a hill. In addition, Chrome decals light up at night to assist in the visibility of the vehicle from behind.
