Split screen focus for K7

Years ago I had an ME Super and loved the split screen focusing, now I have a K7 i would love to have a similar focusing aid, but don't know if this is available, or feel confident to do it myself, any idea's where I may be able to get it done in the UK.
Thanks in advance, Gary.

I just bought a split screen on ebay from jinfinance. I love it. I bought one along with the pentax magnifying eyecup plus a tool kit for the install. Took less than 5 minutes to install and is very easy. If you want to know what the install instructions are, look at the KatzEye website (they have them online). The pentax dslrs are designed with a user replaceable focusing screen, so it's much easier than other brands.

Thanks Greg, I'll look them up and have to try it myself, always worried I'm going to cause damage and end up with a greater cost than paying someone else to do it, so I'll have to be brave!
