Question Protection for AC condenser/ lack of lower grille?

(Apologize if this has been discussed already, couldn't find any threads on it in search)
Is there any remedy available to protect the exposed lower ac condenser in the RS grill? Looks pretty vulnerable to rocks. I just came from a car with no a/c because the condenser was shot due to rock damage, don't want to repeat the experience. I'm planning on fabricating something to protect it if need be, but if the aftermarket has already made something I'd be interested.

Someone is already selling them in the classifieds.

There are a couple new aftermarket ones coming out in the near future.

This may or may not be valid, but some here have added Grillcraft-like mesh grills into the openings on the facia of the cars. I'd expect that that would do a bit to protect the radiator and whatnot from rock hits.
