    Looks GREAT!

    If you don't mind telling, how much was the mat from NAPA, I was looking at horse stall mats from tractor supply, but they were way too big and around $30. A little expensive I think.

    Also, how thick is the mat to make those amazing stripes, the horse stall mats looked way too thick at around 3/4 of an inch.

    you don't want that horse stall matt.....I found an old Truck Mud Flap, it worked good on one mower. I'd get the rubber belting that they sell by the foot. Like a few bucks a foot, about 1/8" thick and however long you want.

    I too want to know were you buy the mats because i went to Napas yesterday and found nothing. Do you just use a Mud flap or something?

    i have exmark turf tracers and they dont have stripe kits on them and they put down some of the best stripes we have. i would compare to my turf tigers.
