Default Window Guards

The AC on my 01 has gone the way of memory and won't be fixed. Looks like I'll be driving around this summer with the windows down so I'd like to cut back on the draft. Can anyone suggest where I might pick up window guards to attach to the top of the window frame?

Actually, rolling down the back window on the same side makes a huge difference.

I usually agree w/Lion, but in my opinion the glue-on ones suck.
Spend more and get the better ones from Weathertech - they fit in the window channel and don't stick out as far.

The ones I have on my '05 I moved over from my '02 when I traded.

I just got the fronts.

I'm not a fan of guards...a few of my cars came with them, but I've never bought them.
In Florida the heat makes them brittle. The main reason I don't like them is having to roll down the damn windows to clean the top 3"

I've had them on previous cars, too, and they were the in the channel style, but they can be a PITA to clean around,.
