Default Adding glow sticker around ignition?

Hey everyone,
so my OBS doesn't have the light by the ignition(which is odd since my 93 Ford Escort did!) and I've found out it's nearly impossible to add a true lighted ignition. So I'm thinking of finding a glow in the dark sticker(basically just a donut shaped one with a spot in the middle for the ignition) to put around the ignition on the steering column. As simple as it sounds, I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Anyone know where I could get such a sticker?

I'm well aware but my 04 OBS does not so I'm looking to improvise something.

There are fluorescent tapes that you can cut and tape around the ring, but I'm not sure if it is stretchable enough to follow the donut contour of the plastic ring around the keyhole.

If fluorescen tape is something you had in mind, then hardware stores may carry them. If not, go online to places like:
www.mcmaster.com
go to page 1726, scroll all the way to the bottom. Not sure how bright it can glow.

some hobby shops sell flourescent paints that serve the same purpose.

Just paint it on, let it dry and expose it to light and it will glow...

Thanks for the idea WRXpress. I'll have to stop by a few places and see they carry such an item. I figure it won't be as good as a true illuminated ignition, but it'll be better than nothing.

Thunderlungs,
That's pretty cool. I'll probably still go the paint/sticker route as I'm not darking enough to mess around with wiring(well anything other than stereo related wiring )
