eXmark metro 32 striping kit?

Does the eXmark metro 32 have a striping kit that can be installed? Or, does any one know of a universal 32 striping kit that would work? Just bought this mower and it stripes decently, but nothing really popping like some photos on here.

Are the metro's any good? I mean like the earlier 2000's? I guess I wonder because I have one that I got for CHEAP and fixing it up and maybe selling. Striping Definitely is not overrated. Is makes a yard look amazing and can break a yard if they are crooked and not even.

I bought some of those rubber flaps that eXmark puts under their walk behinds to keep debris from hitting the operator and installed it under all of my Bob-Cat walkbehinds.
It has a small loop in the bottom so I bought some threaded rod, put it in my drill and zipped it right in there.
The purpose for the rod is added weight to keep it down.
It is the perfect thing to help your mower stripe.
It's rubber so it's flexible when you back up.
I think they're on the hydro models but not sure if your 32 will have it or not.
If so, check for the loop that runs along the bottom edge.
If so, all you need is a piece of threaded rod cut to length and zip it in there with a drill!

Exmark does not offer a striping kit for our Metros.

I had that rubber flap on my metro and was thinking about adding a metal rod to define the stripes a little more

I took a look at my flap- the hole is very small, a centimeter diameter it looks like. I don't think there is a metal rod that can fit in there that would be heavy enough to make any difference.

You don't fit it through that hole you punch a couple of holes in the flap get a metal pipe and zip tie it on the flap, if you get a threaded pipe you can fill it with sand to give some weight
