Now the hood/bug gaurd thing that goes on the front has like too built-in screws under the hood, and a couple clips, I might pick one of them up..

Atomic Robot: For the hood deflector, be sure to mount the rubber bumpers directly to the hood and not the underside of the deflector. If the rubber bumpers are attached to the deflector they will rub the hood scratching the paint, in some cases completely removing the paint causing rust. The instructions indicate this, but who follows them? Most dealer installed deflectors that I have seen have the rubber bumpers on the deflector which is wrong. The Subaru deflector includes a paper template which you tape to the hood temporarily, you then install the rubber bumpers to the locations where the paper template has a hole. Also use the rubber/plastic tape to protect the front hood edges where the deflector wraps underneath.

I found one at subaruparts.com for $107 + $10 shipping, but I'm not gonna drill. Dealer price is $137- installation is another $150. I think I'll have them put one on eventually, but first I've got to pony-up $550 for the 60K mi service that the previous owner skipped.
I haven't seen the front deflectors- I'll have to look into those, as well.
