    Here are some pics of my homemade striping kit and the results. The stripes would be more defined if I had a better lawn.

    It's made from a rubber mat I picked up from a Tractor Supply store near me for $12. One side is smooth and the other ribbed. I only used about 1/3 of the mat, so I have spare if it wears out. I just wished that Home Depot had a heavier angle iron. This one will probably bend after a while.

    Looks like a cheap way to stripe. Is it on an exmark. How thick is the mat and how wide did you cut it? Think Ill steal this idea.

    It is on an exmark. The mat was 27" wide which was a few inches wider than the inside dimension between the rear tires.
