I currently have a pro slide on my 61 walkbehind ferris. Unfortunately my guys have worn out the slide plate by driving it on blacktop and such. My question is does anyone know if these plates can be made in any width. The problem is that there is a gap between the edge of the plate and the wheel on both sides and leaves lighter colored stripes within the actual stripe. I would like to make the plate wider if possible. What are they made of? Can I make something like this myself or will I have to order it.
