no blowout, the Accelerator packs them in very nice, but when it starts to get full (like more than half) it starts to leave a trail. I was looking at it and I noticed the back of the bag doesnt sit completely flush with the mower deck, so I think I need to move the bracket in another 1/4" and that may or may not solve the problem.

And some updates I made to the Chevy. Bakcrack, reverse lights, light bar, grill lights, switch box, CB and scanner. As you can see from the inside pic, I ran out of black zip ties. Thats a project for this weekend.

Can't seem to figure out how to imbed the video but here it is

Well I finished my last leaf cleanup this past weekend and everything is pretty much shut down as far as the lawn and landscape operation goes. I've pretty much got everything set to go with plowing also. I finally got my Boss controller mounted, as much as I was trying to NOT drill any more holes in the floor, thats where it ended up. Its in good reach from the driver's seat. Also below is a pic of my Boss plow which I don't think I posted yet.

The lights in the grille are sweeeet! You should try to throw a white strobe in the clear portion of your taillights too. BTW I have that same arm rest you do, I really wish the seat in my 05 folded down like the one in my 09 tho.
