Dial Kits

Ok i need some help on this...
for a while now i have been looking for a replacement dial kit for the speedo/tacho on my dash.
Quite simply i have been looking for the exact same layout as is normal on this (black with white numbers and notches) but with one difference; the notches and numbers to glow blue at night instead of the traditional bmw orange.

What is very annoying is that not only do lockwood dials not do this layout (aswell as telling me it would cost me 350 to make a custom one) but it seems that they are the only people to make dial kits at all.

Does anyone know of another company that makes these dial kits or an alternative plan to achieve the sme effect?

ah you would have thought so but the origional orange glow comes from 3x501 style white bulbs controlled by a dimmer below the dash so when i changed to LED there was no glow at all which leads me to believe it is the dials themselves which cause the glow colour (by paint?)
