Elevation knob paint?

Anyone know where I can get an elevation knob with colored or white numbers, or send mine out to get it done. Pretty hard for me to read since my I don't shoot with bofocals on, and my eyes aren't as young as they used to be.

Have you tried just taking a laquer stick/wax crayon/pencil and rubbing the white in?. I think that's what most companies do anyways.

My numbers were done in white when I had my M1A reparkerized. I suppose most repark services will do it. A white grease pencil works ok, but a very fine brush followed by a solvent dampened rag to wipe the excess is one way that I have heard it is done.
