FA J 75-300mm - What Hood?

I just got this lens off a great guy on this forum, I needed something way lighter then my K A 70-210 (just doesn't feel right on this camera) and cant afford the DA 55-300mm until next year!

Doing our yearly trip to Laguna Seca in October (for the ALMS finale) and needed a decent lens for that event. But, it has no Hood. Looks like there are grooves maybe for a snap and rotate like the stock one on my Kit lens.

Anyone have info on what hood would work well with this lens?

I also need to find some lens cases quick! LOL!

Well, after some google work I found the Pentax pt number...seems BH carrys it in both silver and black but is OOS. Nothing on Ebay either. For anyone else:

Pentax PH-RBF58 58mm Lens Hood - it is reversible on the on the lens.

Now to get a CPL....
