Default State inspections...GRRRR!!

I took my nearly-new '03 RSX through the annual state safety inspection only
to have it fail because the lenses on the fog lights have been cracked by
flying road debris. As you all know, Acura parts ain't cheap, so it's going
to cost some cash to replace the fog lights because apparently the
individual lenses aren't sold separately (go figure). Unless I find some
kind of permanent solution to this problem, though, I can see it recurring
each year at inspection time. The guy at the dealer told me some
after-market companies make a kind of peel-and-stick material that can be
affixed to the fog light lenses to prevent breakage. Has anyone here had
any experience with this product? Any idea where I might be able to find
it? I spent a couple of hours searching different parts Web sites but
haven't found anything like this. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I looked at those sites and did find something called a Fog Light Protector
on autogardusa.com, but there was no description of the item or a pic, just
the price and a part number. Does anyone know what these things are? Peel
and stick? Plastic? Metal grate? I believe they were $20 each.
