Question for the board: blower belts. Can one be made? ...

...I’m building a blown Hemi for a 1/16 car. Yes, I am actually building something! I replaced the blower pulleys with 3D printed pulleys, which are a HUGE improvement over the kit pieces.

The old plastic blower belt is a little meh, and also, it’s for a 2-pulley set up, while I have added an idler pulley and bracket, so I’ll need a bigger belt.

Is there any way a mediocre modeler like me can reasonably make a blower belt that will look good?

I’m thinking of cutting one from black paper. Is there any other readily available material I could use where I would get better results, or something anybody could recommend?
