Identifying dash indicators

Hi guys, I'm at the final stages of re-doing my paint and interior. The indicators in the picture below are what I currently have in my dash. I didn't realize when I purchased the indicators from FF that they were quite a bit larger than these. Unfortunately these had to be cut in order to re-do the dash and the wires were too short to put the connections back together.

Does anybody know where the previous owner may have sourced these from? I do like their size, I could use the FF ones if I can't figure out where these came from, but I fear it's going to crowd that space.

Thanks for the help...or any other suggestions you may have.

They look like they may be from finish line, hard to tell from the photo. I bought a few from there and they look similar. Here's a photo for you to compare:

These are threaded on the back with a nut that holds them in place...but these would be close enough if I can't get find these exact ones.

Are they LEDs? If they are, my indicators are about that size - I got them from Amazon.

I believe they are. I've been looking there today, quite a selection.

I have always used the push in type but the hole in the dash has to be the correct size, not to large.

You can check out boat supply places. I think I've seen them at Boaters World. Check out some of the online LED suppliers also.
