Solid upgrades.

Regarding the impeller mod: I've been trying to figure out if anything bad happens when you cover up the groove in the middle of the fan blade. Do you have any concerns with salty slush accumulating there and causing corrosion?

How many blades did you do the mod to? 2 or 4?

If you're worried for rust maybe you can paint the impeller first. (I did)
I did the mod on al 4 blades, It workt great but I have to think of something else because the ratchet lashing band didn't hold as long as i hoped for
Maybe I will use reinforced rubber.

Some people on the forum use conveyor belting purchased at a farm equipment store. You could also use the sidewalls of an old tire to make new pads since they are reinforced\corded rubber.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Baler belt from Tractor supply company. I just cut a strip today and am confident that it'll be up to the task.
