Conveyor belt material for air dams, etc

I have a lead on some Conveyor belting. Post in here if you have some interest and I will get a price.
It will be in 4' widths most likely, but I can cut it down if needed.

2 likes but not a single interest? That's just weird
I'll go with a dam down to about 9 inches above the ground on the truck. I plan on matching side skirts between front and rear wheels as well.

I'm interested.

I have a trio of trucks that have torn off their factory air dams due to . . . stupidity. If the conveyor belt material is tough and economical enough, I can save myself from . . . myself.

I'm curious on the thickness/plys of the belting. I would be looking at two 4'x4' pieces to replace my aging Coroplast rear skirts. If it ends up being too pricey including shipping, I'll probably look at going locally with aluminum diamond plate like I did fer my rear diffuser.

I might could be interested in enough material to equip my truck and my Durango with an air dam and possibly side skirts.

I will check it out next week.
Here is the ad:
repurposed/ reclaimed/ scrap conveyor belting
It does weigh up quickly, so I will get about 9' for my truck job and weigh it.
It does not need packaging beyond being taped securely in a roll.

I've often thought about some sort of material like that. If it is stiff enough I could run it to the road then not worry about dragging it through a parking lot.
I'm checking your link now.

I think if it is in a straight line it will bend back readily, after all it was designed to go around a relatively small roller. If you can make a slight arc with it, and support it halfway down with a backer rod of 1/4" steel it would behave nicely and still have that indestructible quality we desire. I'd just plan on any support being above the highest expected curb, so that is why I picked 9" for me. I want the whole thing above a typical curb, but if you put your backing support above the curb it should survive fine.
