Default desperately seeking rock guard for GXP

I have searched this site and the internets high and low and can't find a rock guard for the front of my 04 GXP. I want the plastic molded thingy that doesn't actually touch the surface/paint.

I do NOT want a car bra. Had one on the SSE and it destroyed the hood.

If anyone knows of any place to get these PLEASE let me know.

I was thinking the same. Too bad you could not find a picture, I never heard of or seen a rock guard

I feel your pain and have the same problem. One thing you can do is not follow any trucks down the highway. If you have to leave a lot of room between you and the truck.

Also does your chip problem happen about 6 inches to 12 inches from the front lip of the hood?

They tried to sell me that at a dealership once. Looked awful.

It'* really not so much the trucks as I always stay back from them as it is oncoming traffic after a bad storm. The gravel gets everywhere and, on a two lane road, there really is no where to go when a big *** truck or SUV comes barreling down the road with all the small chips flying up in their wake.

My chips are on various parts. It had four small ones when I bought the car and now I'm up to six.
