Where can I find a Bubble Thing??

I love this Bubble'ie thang. Any one have an idea who or what makes it? The fiberglass bumps behind the head rests.
Thanks!
Steve

Here's that car on cardomain:

The "bubbles" are called Lorinser Speedster Scoops, and they are about $1000 new. They need to be taken off in order for the roof to close. They were discussed on benzworld a few times, and the consensus opinion on them seemed to be a resounding thumbs-down.

Here's a thread on mbworld with a yellow SLK sporting the scoops:

http://mbworld.org/forums/slk-class-...rman-rice.html

Interestingly enough, there's a picture linked in that thread to the original 1994 SLK prototype and it was actually equipped with some (much smaller) scoops behind the rollbars.

To each his own but not my cup of tea. Sorry, but putting it really nicely, I think they are "fugly", looks like warts on top of the boot.
