Default Bug deflector for LX470

Has anyone run across a quality hood mounted bug deflector for the LX470? I have been searching but cannot find anything. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

Hey all, still only found one of these on eBay at a prohibitive price. Anyone know where I am going to find this? Thanks!

I had one on my F150 and ended up not liking it, even though it was a popular one. I did not seem to be effective, I still got lots of bugs on my windshield. It also left marred paint where the little silicone pieces contacted it. I have similarly low respect for windbreakers for the sunroof - limited effect, catch water,, leaves, debris, leave marks in paint, eventually develop wind leaks/flapping at highway speed. I do not use such product anymore - they always have been detrimental in cost and performance.

I had the same experience before. The hood shield redirects some of the bugs/rocks into my windshield.
