  I'm not sure if any of you are aware of this material, and how handy
you are in a dark room.  But I work in electronics making custom
instruments, and we use a material called MetalPhoto.  It's a
photosensitized aluminum, which you expose and process like film.
Once the material is cured by boiling in a cure bath, the lettering
is indestructible.  A little pricey, $10-20/sheet, depending on size.
You can go a little cheaper by buying thin stuff (0.032) and glueing
to your faceplate.  I don't have the info in front of me, but I can
get you the name of a distributor if you like.
