Default Changing a Power Wheels

So to be clear I am NOT mechanically inclined, good at math, or a fast learner and frankly probably should not be doing this.

I go a power wheels chevy charger and I've taken all the parts out and id like to make more of an adult got kart with a cover of this power wheels.
My bf is a welder so I can easily craft a frame for what I'm going for but my problem lies in finding an electric motor and understanding what I would need. Like say the basics. I've read some of the forums involving electric motors but I honestly am not understanding.

Things I'd like to put on this (some maybe unrealistic) are: brakes/ and pedals, acceleration pedal, steering wheel, headlights, brake lights, blinkers(only on the rear as there is a space for them),hazards if i can do the blinkers, and speedometer.

So any pointer, tips, or anything else you can think you I'd greatly appreciate it .

It's Geo Metro week here at DIYGoKarts, I'd suggest you hang up the Barbie car, and just go get one of those.

Power wheels uses fictitious names to save money. If they Called it a dodge charger they would have to pay more for the licensing.

Anyways guys. A girl comes in and you all scare her away.

Welcome to the forum. Itsid is our local electric guy. He will probably give some good starters for you.

OMG!!!! Welcome to the forum, but you have to realize you're dealing with unbalanced juveniles here. ( And you have left yourself WIDE OPEN!)

Does your BF shove your head under the covers first?
