I saw something like that in a mag I was reading this arvo. Here is a link. No idea about the product or prices.

I have found that since putting a decent stone guard on the front of the van, to deflect any stones away, I have not needed anything on the back of the car.

Many great ideas and I am about to remake my stone guard. This is the one I have at the moment. A layer of clear PVC (Bunnings) 2 layers of grey boat carpet (Bunnings) and a layer of grey PVC (to match the car colour). Sew together with velcro on the back. The velcro on the glassis Velcro (brand only) "Sure Grip or True Grip". It will not come of with the outback heat where others will.

In this way you can just take it off and put it on, as many times as you want.

If you have a 200, the rear window is $2900 to replace. Yes.. toyota have caught with Mercedes and BMW at screwing (can I use that word) you for parts.

To prove it works, I showed my wife it, by throwing a rock at the back window. I missed, and hit the car itself. That was not good.

The simplest way ?? Go to your local sign shop-and ask them to cut you a piece of 3 or 5mm corflute !! Attach it to the glass with some silicone blobs (will scrape off later) or attach it with duct tape !!!!
