How to Paint Plastic or Fiberglass Golf Carts

By Bobby Ingram

Owning a golf cart can be fun, but sometimes a factory-issued white or forest green cart can be a bit bland. Fortunately, you can repaint your cart in one day, meaning you can have a brand-new design ready for your next visit to the course.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step 1
Remove any trimmings that can be removed from the cart, such as bag racks or windshields.
Step 2
Wash the cart to ensure that it is clean before painting. Be sure to remove any debris stuck to the cart.
Step 3
Construct a spraying area for your cart by either building a makeshift shed or using your garage and hanging tarps to protect the ground, walls and ceiling from residual spray.
Step 4
Park the cart in your spraying area and apply tape to any areas of the cart that you don't want to paint. Use the paper to block off larger areas at once.
Step 5
Apply a coat of primer to the cart to ensure your final color stands out.
Step 6
Apply the spray paint, being sure not to spray too close to the cart, which will lead to pooling.
Step 7
Let the paint dry and apply another layer. Repeat until the color is as uniform and vibrant as desired.
Step 8
Buff the cart if desired to give your final product a nice shine.
