They can be hard to find, but I'd recommend sourcing one through an instrument repair shop.

Find a 720 in the junkyard if you can, and pull a needle from it. I have 720 needles in my 88 (tach & speedo) and they don't bend like the stock ones do. Whenever I've found 720s their needles have been in good shape.

You can also pull needles out of late 80s Mazda B series, but they don't look as good as the 720s.
