Hey nice setup I was wonder what thickness of rubber do you have on the striper on the Toro? I wonder because I want to do the same to my Toro?
Also if you could put up a pic of the striper. Thanks

I went to rural king and bought a premium mud flap and some 1" x 1/8" metal cut it to fit works great and has lasted a few years with no problems. I think I had less then $40 in the whole thing. A Lot better then a few hundred. I will try to get some better pictures of it today

1/2" might be a little thick but you could try it and see how it does mine is 3/8" and is very forgiving.
