Lens hood woes

    I just picked-up a Nikkor 300mm AF-I 2..8. Unfortunately, it was missing
    the lens hood. A replacement (IF it could be found), cost a small fortune.

    Does anybody know of a less expensive generic hood & where to obtain one? I
    don't care what it has written on it, anything interchangeable will do the
    trick.

    I was thinking of constructing one out of thin black, plastic sheet that
    could be rolled into a tub shape. however haven't thought of a good
    location to find such stuff. Any suggestions?

    Thanks much,

    Jimmy

    How about a piece of ABS drain pipe? with a bit of machining, I am shure one
    could be made to fit using an end cap if necessary.

    My 2¢
