I am gonna get a Cub Cadet Cyclops this weekend, and I am deadly worried about damaging the plastic. It has NICE plastic on it!!
 
The "homegrown" grill guards I have seen make the tractor look like a luggage transport tug at the airport!! 
:
I would rather it not look like this

OR this!!

If I do not protect it, I KNOW it will end up like my other Cyclops!!

So, do you have a pic or a source for an aesthetically correct grill guard?? 
 
Please help me sleep better at night!

How about a Brinly "Gard-N-Cart"?  I think Brinly made them for most major brands, I made this replica from measurements of one one a CC.

I think this one looks sleek and appears to get the job done.
