The deflector is an important auto part, which can protect your automobile from stone and bugs, keeping it clean and making the journey a more comfortable. The road debris or bugs can hit the windshield and hood that can cause damages such as chipped paint and cracked windshields. The stone and bug deflector is mounted on the front part of the hood. It is designed to create a slipstream effect that can push the bugs and road debris over the top of the automobile. The investment in the deflector is worth it compared to the costs on repair the damages caused by the flying debris.
The bug deflectors are not produced for all vehicles. The most cars are designed with sloping windshields and down-turning hoods. Such aerodynamic design minimizes the wind resistance and let the wind stream over the car preventing bugs and debris from hitting the hood and windshield. The bug deflector is important for the SUVs and trucks as they have vertical windshields and flat hoods that are not wind resistant and let the bugs and stones strike the windshield and cause damages. The installation of the bug deflector can add aerodynamics necessary to push these objects over the automobile.
The bug and stone deflectors are often produced from the high grade acrylic. This material well-known for its scratch, crack and warp-resistance. The stainless steel is another material used in the production of the auto deflectors. Both materials are durable, rust resistant as well as impact-resistant to stand up to flying road debris and bugs.

Produced to fit exactly onto your vehicle they come in either smoked or clear configurations. The deflectors can be painted to match or accentuate the color of your automobile.
