Mine was one of the threads for alternative center scale for 5400. I 
created mine by taking the scale off the meter, scanning it at as 
higher res as I could.
I loaded the BMP ( preferred to jpg because of losses in compression) 
into Paintshop Pro, re-lettered it with the appropriate figures and 
airbrushed the scanning blemishes.

I printed it onto a self-adhesive label ( took several attempts to 
get size exactly right) and stuck it on the back of the existing 
scale. couldn't tell it from the original.

Hope this may help.
