    Here is a couple of pics for ya it is basically just a piece of rubber and a piece of metal I bought at the hardware store that had holes drilled in it all the way across and just bolted it to the back of the deck.

    You need to work on using the entire deck, the return lines are like 48inches wide. Stripes look good tho.

    This is an old thread but I was thinking about doing it to mine. Is it worth it in the south I'm in Mississippi and was wandering if southern grass made a difference
