I ordered mine from Tim at hondacuraworld.com. It looks great and it's a very easy install! Tim's # is 1-888-RAY-LAKS

I personally purchased the WeatherTech® Easy-On Stone & Bug Deflector. It was easy to install, and was only $ 54.95 + $ 12.00 for Shipping & Handling.



Here is the link.

Steve, does the WeatherTech flex in the center as some here have reported with the FormFit?

It flexes at higher speeds, but it comes nowhere near to touching the hood.

BTW, the Lund Deflector is a rigid stand-off design and stays a considerable distance from the hood. It does not require any bump-ons and allows easy access to clean, dry and Zaino all parts of the hood. No noticable flexing at high speed.

I agree with Steve. The Weathertech probably doesn't require the bump-ons, but I'm putting them on anyway, just in case.

Here's where I put the bumpons on my Form Fit deflector, one on each side:

I understood that the bumpons should be attached to the car, not to the deflector. I thought that this was so the bumpon would not run the paint. :confused:

It is attached to the car. The Form Fit deflector's fit in those corners is a tight one, so both bumpons are under pressure.

After having mine on for a month, I inspected it while pumping gas the other day, and I now know that it does touch in the center. There is a little scuff mark on the hood right in the middle where the deflector flexes in the wind. :3: It didn't wipe off with my wet finger, so it isn't dirt. I'm going to have to buy a rubber bump-on to add to the middle section tomorrow.

I don't think they do. I searched for the formfit website and couldn't find it.
If you want a clear one you're probably going to have to go with the Lund one.

I installed the Lund Interceptor on my 04 Pilot. I liked it because it sets a small distance off of the hood so you can wash or wax in behind the deflector. Took me about 5 minutes to install and no notible flexing at 75 mph. I had one of these on my Ranger and was very pleased with it. :1:

Deflector Rubbing

Hey nykwan!

I also feel your pain.

I just got back today from a 1500 mile trek to the OBX. I put my deflector on a month ago and we were really able to test the FormFit Deflector while on vacation. But when I washed my Pilot when we got home I noticed the same marks in the center of the hood where it rubbed. It was very windy traveling to and on Hatteras Island.
Let me know if and where you find the bump-ons. Otherwise the deflector looks and works great.

I still haven't had the time to go look for the bumpons yet. But I was going to go look at Home Depot when I got the chance. I know they carry the clear, tiny ones because I bought them long time ago to put on the kitchen cabinet doors. Just one of those would keep the deflector from hitting the hood anymore, and probably reduce the flexing.
