DSLR filter sources

I'm guessing this has been covered somewhere but I can't find it.

My 550D is in for repairs and I'm checking options to get an IR filter upgrade if they need to pull it down.

Any suggestions on what filter I should be looking at and where to get them?
No specialist work yet so general purpose usage.

Simon thanks for that. Astromart have them listed so that could give a couple of options if the install cost is not too bad. Not brave enough to want to do it myself to my main camera.

Bob,
Why do you want to consider an IR upgrade?
The two choices are:
1. Remove the Colour correction filter and get better Ha responce - and a red cast in normal photographs
2. As above but remove also the front AA/Dust filter to extend the wavelength sensitivity into the UV and IR
Clip in filters from Astronomiks can re-compensate for "holiday snaps"
