I'm attempting to make a striping kit for my JD GS45 walkbehind. I am using a heavy plastic mud flap from a semi that I am bolting to the rear of my mower. I've cut it so that it is exactly the width of the space between my tires. The only problem I'm having is it seems to need more weight on the end of the flap because it is not folding the grass down enough. What can be attached to the flap to add more weight. I was thinking of small lead weights but any other suggestions would be appreciated.

If your flap simply needs more weight, you can buy bar stock from like Home Depot for $1 and bolt it to the bottom of your flap. Probably the cheapest way, and keeping it look neat too.
This also gives you the options to choose how much weight you need, just get a bigger stock size.
Hope this helps.
