NEEDED!! Pentax k-3 replacement mode dial decal

Hi there,
I am looking for a Pentax k-3 mode dial decal (the disc which has the different mode names). It fell off somewhere during a recent trip. Pentax wants me to send it to precision camera who are asking $306 for a repair. Any help in this matter will be appreciated.
Thanks
G

Your only alternative would be to locate a body for parts and carry out the replacement yourself. Might be cheaper to just find another used but working K-5 if you want to stick to that model for now.

Ah, whoops. In that case the repair might be your only choice, since a new body would be twice that. You still can't just buy spare parts directly. But other places like KEH might be able to fix your camera for less!
