does anyone know what orange paint I can paint my needle with, orange fluorescent?
That's what I did. Paint them all or they will look mismatched.
This is the paint I use... Custom Fluorescent Orange Speedo & Gauge Needle Paint | eBay It's a water base acrylic. My methods in renewing gauges wouldn't apply. Those who aren't taking the gauges apart in any way would mask the screens with aluminum foil.
I ordered that same one from a company called white gauges, thanks
I use an orange nail polish in fluorescent or neon it worked well and very close match
I used florescent red model car paint and a brush. Worked great.

Here’s a better pic of the dash finished
I used Testors fluorescent model paint in the little tiny glass bottle and added a touch of red enamel to it. The pure orange was just a bit too orange and I wanted to match the speedo and clock needles to the three new gauges on the left.
Believe it or not, I used an orange permanent sharpy .
Enamels that use a solvent rather than aqueous carrier will tend to build a thinner film. If not starting from a clean metal base those seemed to be a better choice me. FWIW Samples of Testors Fluorescent Orange and Red. Two coats on steel staples dipped in the jar. Metal was cleaned with acetone before dipping. Other cleaners would probably work just as well. Photo shot in shaded daylight. YMMV
IMO the orange was closer to the '67 needles. One coat just touching up the worn areas.
One swipe with the paint brush makes a big difference. Look at how faded the first one was.
