Doomed forever with orange needles?!?!

I HATE the orange needles..I know theres methods of changing the colour at night, but I want these needles either swapped for a substitute or find a way to change the colour permanently..Any suggestions?

Contour needles. There's a thread on here somewhere about doing the switch out. Try doing a search for Contour and see what you get.

Some people on the forums are saying 2003+ Foci have red needles stock. Can anyone confirm this is true? If so, i'll take the easy route and pull one up from a junkyard.

my 03's cluster had red needles. but it looked like the s2 (with a gray gauge face) you could also get needles from a 2000-2004 mercury cougar. i did and they look sweet.
