K100D IR Conversion QUestion

I have a K100D that has a slight AF problem (won't stay locked on and you can't change AF points). I sent it to Pentax but decided it wasn't worth the 250-300 they wanted to fix the AF sensor on it. I have been thinking about converting it to IR (myself) and was wondering where I can get a 720nm IR filter to replace the hot filter I would be removing from the K100D. I haven't been able to find much.

think the conversion process is very difficult and costs quite a bit of money to do.
