Idiot light for CS Alternator

Hello all. I'm looking for an dash mount style idiot light to wire in to my alternator light lead on my CS144. All I can find around my area are LED's. Anyone have any leads or suggestions for a 194/168 style lamp socket with bezel that looks good mounted on the dash? Lots of info on how to wire but not on the actual light fixture itself. Thanks.

You might think about, if you have room, drilling a small hole in the speedo gauge side and mount a bayonet type plug for a 194, behind the cluster, so that when it lights up you get the glow but not the unattractiveness of a light mounted thru your dash.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I found a nice light thru sa-cal speed shop in vegas...red light with removable chrome bezel that uses a 194/168 bulb. Regards.
