I got a lot of slack because of my home made striping kit. I didnt have the money for a high dollar mower so I settled with the troy built mustang and put some floor mats hanging off the back. personaly i dont think the mower looks bad just get alot of questions about it. We have been in a drought all summer long but in the last 2 weeks or so we have gotten around 9 inches of rain. When the grass greened up the stripes where a lot darker then I thought they would be. Sorry but I took these pics with my cell phone and to top it off, today was a overcast kind of day. What do you all think??
