Hi dude welcome to the forums plenty of choices when it comes to white dials you can buy them the ones on ebay me thinks retail for around the $70 mark you could also do what some of the other members have done a make your own theres a tech doco floating round here somewhere that datamine contributed. hope this helps.

welcome to the site mate =D hope you have fun staying on this forum.

you could always try and pull your ones off and scrape the backing off and put some white nail polish or so over the orange.....or u might want to dip it in acetone and it will just eat away all the orange stuff and leave a nice foggy look...btw the last theory i have never tried but i know acetone dries the s**t out of plastic even though plastic is already dry.

yeah the fairmont and ghia ones are the same, but mine have ghia written on them, so might look a bit wanky... still, they're yours if you want them.
