Pentax LX Flash Sync Cover

Just picked up an LX but it doesn't have a Flash Sync Cover. If someone has one they'd be willing to sell I would greatly appreciate it!

Are the LX special in some way? I've don't have an LX, but have several other old bodies with lugs -- ME, MX, K1000, Spotmatics, non-Pentaxes too: Yashicas, Prakticas -- they all look pretty similar...

The LX is actually so modular that even the strap lugs are removable. Not just the little metal triangles but the lugs themselves can be removed and moved around. If you look at some images you'll see 3 different metal things sticking out of the front of the camera that the lugs can be attached to. (so you can either configure the camera to hang normally or sideways ala Leica M5).

LX lugs

I saw a LX strap on ebay that looks like it includes the lugs, search Pentax LX if you haven't found some already
