Unusual lamp guards

I saw some front and rear lamp guards for the Defender and for the life of me, I can't find them anywhere. They looked to fit only over the lights, that is parking, brake and back-up lamps and looked to be made of steel and made kind of an X shape. I have seen the ones on Rovers North etc. Was wondering if anyone could help me find them. Tried to recreate it here:


Thanks much!

I believe them to be genuine. They only fit on the small rest of world lights.

Growing up overseas I saw small metal cages over each individual round ligh( turn signal, reverse light, etc). is that what you are referring to? As mentioned above I believe they came from land rover as an option but not on U.S. spec

I've seen several of the wire/mesh cage type of light covers. I saw these on a picture of a Series Rover in the X shape and thought they were really cool looking!

Very nicely done! Although it seems a bit overkill. I've never really seen the appeal of lamp guards and brush guards, they seem to do more damage than protecting.
