    Thanks all for the kind words, im still having brake problems with the eXmark so the full braking power isn't there sometimes (usually when i need it) which creates the extra turn marks of having to go back and mow where i made the wide turn......i really appreciate the kind words and i sometimes can't believe the stripes since i dont' have a stripe kit on the mower!!

    SOMM, your stripes look amazing from your other posts
