    Check out the stripes from the new striping kit i made..Whatta yall think?
    Just mowed it once, i dont double mow. Defeats the purpose of creating a
    worthy stripe kit.

    Heres some brand new pics for you guys, just now went out and took em', forgive the huge mess.. im in the process of trying to clean out the garage and everythings out of order right now.

    48" Husqvarna hydro, 17hp kawasaki.

    The Stripe kit (as you can see, is nothing more than a rubber strip that i bought at Napa, attached to the back of the deck.)
    ive made a bunch of other designs but nothing stripes near as well as this method, (except for rollers of course).

    I made one from a 3" piece of pvc pipe filled with sand. it rolls behind my zero turn. It works OK but I only used it twice now. Do you think that the rubber method would make better stripes than my pvc roller??

    Just curious, why didn't you put the rubber all the way across the back of the deck? I know the wheels roll over the grass, but I mean while you were at it anyways? I have a Hustler Super Z with a striping roller and it stripes better than any mower I have ever had, and the roller goes all the full length of the deck. Again, just curious

    it looks great, but the kits are over rated.
