yeah, strange question but i am looking for the most cost-effective way to get a transparent/translucent orange film to put on the face of a gauge.

i know that i can get a huge order of acetate film. that would work. if it is still available, an orange lamin-x foglight cover kit would work.

orange cellophane is yet another option but costs just as much since you have to buy a lot of it.

for reference, it has to cover an area of roughly 2" x 3".

any ideas?

I'd go with the orange Lamin-x film. A fellow Europrojektz club member did that with his headlight lenses and it looked pretty dope.

Pick up light filters used on studio spotlights. I used some Roscolux amber filters to change the color of my Pioneer head unit display. They are UV stable and have a much higher transmissivity than cellophane or even cheap light filters, so the gauge stays nice and bright.
