    I always had luck with the local sand pits/ material processors, they usually have old worn belts kicking around.

    Like Oshkosh said, go to your local gravel bank/ rock quarry.

    I have also seen guys using rubber mud flapps to deflect the sand and salt.

    I used an old mud flap from a 10whlr

    Also a tailgate piece from a poly p/u bed liner kit I had lying around

    I just used two old mudflaps for mine. Had to drill holes to fit my spreader lines through, but that was it.

    Home Depot or Lowes. Get a rubber floor mat in the size you need. Cheap and quick. Conveyor belt is nice if you could find it.

    A mudflap I found on the side of the road. Conveyer material is nice too...but that flap fell off.
