Here's some pics of a bit of striping with the old 1998 proline...

Some of these (in the above also) were taken in progress, hence a few odd-looking stripes.
The mower in the pic is what was used.

that one wheeled velke kind of messes up the stripes but they are still laid down nicely

Looks great but he's right that wheel throws off the perfect blend.

Actually not to disagree entirely, but I think where the wheels ride are the only parts where it looks truly striped. Without it, it would be edged to where it is darkest / lightest near the edges of the stripe... So, the velke leaves another strip in the center but it's still the wheels doing it all, to solve this problem I may get a proslide one day, I think that would really fix things.

As things stand, I got my winter money saved but not much extra... Meanwhile, I have close to a thousand in bills that need paying, the IRS wants a few grand and my wish list is already over a thousand as well. Priority-wise, the proslide and my wishes might be some time off yet :laugh:

Persoanally I like the tire mark in the middle...It looks like the stripe the old 3wheelers used to leave.

I think in a way the wheel takes away from it, but its not too bad. Its a bit more like plaid than checkerboard is all. still looks good. nice job. :usflag:

Topsites, how do you get your company name in the picture like that?

Looks Great! Topsites, how do you like the kohler engine on the mower? Have you had any problems with it?
