    Although I am a dab hand with a halfords spray can ands would happily do it to the needles without blinking (though the hobbycraft type model spray gear would likely be better), it is all a bit of a moot point as nearly everyone I know who has done red needles in the past has done it with a red sharpie.

    why reinvent the wheel, or needle in this case.

    I've read about people over on E46 fanatics just using a sharpie to do it, doesn't seem too difficult just a bit of colouring in tbh!
