    Are these the ones you found??

For anyone who is interested, they are the BA7s (scroll down about 3/4 down
the page listed above).  For 3 bucks a piece, get 4 white and 3 red to do
your A/C panel.  They plug right in, just as the old bulbs do.  No worries
about polarity or improper fit.  Just put the 4 white ones in the sockets
behind the panel, and the 3 red bulbs in the fan fail, defroster, and lock
doors sockets.  *Be careful not to push the sockets back behind the panel or
you'll have to reach behind and "feel" them back into the hole*

I mention this with excitement as I just performed this mod to my car a
couple weeks ago.  On my early car, I was worried about damaging the
"unique" earliest style panel from the heat.  Doing the wiring mod kept them
off during the day, but that thing would still burn my hand if I touched it
at night -so I just unplugged the lights all together.  Thanks to Rod
Dillman and others for posting the info for this site back in July.  I
bought the bulbs, installed them using only one small, phillips screwdriver.
Very easy, the light is bright and even, and the panel is always cool to the

By the way, I have no affiliation with the site I listed above.  I'm just a
satisfied customer.  :-)

Check this out! I have only seen this installed, I haven't driven 
it, but it appears to be the ultimate brake upgrade to me.

IMHO, if you want stainless there are too many D's available to mess 
with taking paint off of one - especially if you don't know what is 
under the paint (Bondo, etc.).
