I installed my stripe kit this morning. Only took about 20 minutes, very easy to install. I also had the same problem as mtmower and ProStreetCamaro, the glossy side will not face the deck as the instructions say. The holes will not line up that way. Only tools needed are a 3/8" air ratchet with a T45 torx bit. Just jack up the rear end and take off the tires to get access to the rear of the deck.
I did stripe with it today with mixed results. Some lawns striped better and some not as good as usual. I will report back after I use it more.
