All,

My PO did a number on the front 1" of the hood and fenders of my recently aquired LX450. I am looking for a bug shield that will cover until I can find a new hood and get the paint done.

I can't find pictures of bug deflectors on vehicles!! How do manufacturers expect to sell them with no pictures of the application?

Pictures of brands other than OEM would be appreciated! Looking for one that covers the front corners of the fenders.

Thanks,
CAZ

Sorry, I guess I was not totally clear....

I know that the OEM looks like - looking for pictures of other brands - unless of course the OEM is still available!

Thanks,

I feel your pain. I spent a good amount of time looking for photos of aftermarket deflectors too. No luck.

I eventually went with clear bra instead, although I realize that is not an option for you.

YOu can probaly find more OLDER pics on my gallery, of different angles.

Perfect! Covers the front of the hood and the corners of the fenders. This is what I am looking for! Order placed.

I actually have a new one in the box, can't remember the manufacturer. I can pull it out and take pics and if you want it I am sure we could work something out. Shoot me a PM if your interested.

Good ole JC Whitney!

AutoVentShade or AVS is the supplier. Wait a few days and I will see if it is the one in the picture and confirm.

I'm pretty sure my window vent shades are the same as SiRaDude's. Mine are AVS anyway. They've been on since we bought the truck, almost 3 years, and are doing fine.

I had some AVS brand ones on my old Rodeo for over 15 years and they were OK, no problems in all that time.

The tape AVS uses is pretty bulletproof.

Question I got is this. What does the deflector do if you have an ARB bumper mounted? I took mine off and couldn't tell any difference.
