Default Interior light replacement problemfor 96 SSEi

Hey im new here and i was wondering if anyone could help me with my problem. Im tryin to change all the interior lights in my '96 SSEi to red but i cant find the size 74 mount courtesy lights on the door panels or the dome lights. Ive already changed the lights in the trunk and on the front panels and these are the only lights that i have left to replace. Ive been to AutoZone,Advanced Auto Parts, Pep Boys, a bunch of online stores and even Nopi. If anyone has any suggestions please help me out it would be much appreciated.

Actually you can use red tint over the lenses. Several members that have done this will probably chime in here.

Red tint film is the best way to go...apply it to the inside of the lens, and pop it back into place, works very well, plus you dont have to change all the bulbs.

You can get the film from a audio visual store... that'* what I used for my 91.
Or use red DIY tint... I'm going to do that for my 97.
