Facing the stripes.. They look better from far away. My front yard has better grass then the back yard. I have to put some shade grass in the back. We moved in, in October so this is the first summer I've had to work with the yard.

This is done with a chain kit i made but I used cheap materials and am now redoing it with angle iron as I should of in the first place.

Thanks! Unfortunatley it's hard to stand in the middle of the road to take pics. They really do look alot better a little farther away. I will take pics of the newer stripe kit i made and post it's results when done. I might bring the chains behind the wheels too. I see many kits that are in between the wheels and you can see the wheel marks still. I want a nice even stripe.

Thanks guys. Hey premier I'll post a few pics of how my set up is. My Ferris has a nice flat piece of metal on the rear bottom side so i just bolted the angle iron to it and I am attaching chains with S- hooks to it. The chain is what's gonna cost some money.
