Need a new viewfinder glass - where to look?

My K100D Super viewfinder is badly scratched and using manual lenses is like taking photographs with cataract now. Someone tried cleaning it as it was oily and ended up scratching it a lot.

I searched through Adorama, Amazon and B&H with no luck. Can someone please help me with options?

I have 3 old Pentax SLRs at home, the MZ50, K1000 and the other unknown. Will their viewfinders fit the K100DS?

As I am in India, there are no service centers here. There is a great camera technician here however who has promised he can change the viewfinder if I get him the glass.

Eagerly waiting for a way out. Thank you for reading. I love MF lenses and use them almost all the time.

I think the OP is talking about the viewfinder glass, not the focusing screen.

This thread might help in polishing or replacing the viewfinder glass.

Thank you tomwil for that post. I will try to find a similar plastic polish here as the Novus polish mentioned in the post is not available in India.

I have tried ebay also for a replacement viewfinder "glass" but it does not seem to be available anywhere.

Thanks again.
