If you live in an area with lots of high-tech, there is probably a local shop 
that specializes in plastic.  In my area, it's TAP Plastics.
I've only used them once, but they were great.

The plastic for a 5370 has a mask on the back side.  On the right, it's a 
stencil to turn diffuse LEDs to text.  You could probably make the equivalent 
by printing on the plastic sheets used with old overhead slide projectors.

There is a diagram on page 3-10 of the operating/programming manual.  I'll 
take a picture if that will help.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
