P&J,

Those stripes look good don't get me wrong. But I think you could make them even better with the roller.

I think that's why there have been several who have asked is that a 72" deck, the stripes look really wide cuz there is no real strong line of definition where the stripes change direction. Matter of fact it looks (in some of the pictures) that there is one wide stripe next to a narrower stripe.

The further away you get from the stripes the better they look....see your pictures. You could get them to look great even close up if you put the roller on your ZTR.

That picture of "from the highway" is GREAT.

Keep up the good work.

I dont really think the stripes are that good. No offense it was nice straight lines but except for one of the photos near the end. It was more tire tracks than stripes. My mower sort of does the same effect, but I am not trying for stripes.

I say get a striping kit and it will look like Eric Elms stripes.

What your seeing is the tire tracks...they are real dark because of the weight. A striping kit would make the entire width look like that. This is why I say they are not very good.
