Gentoo wiki has a pretty decent looking article on it here: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Create_an_Updated_Ebuild

There's more than you probably need to know there, but it will help get the overlay setup. Then you can pretty much just copy the .ebuild file for the latest drivers in portage and rename it using the same format for the 169.04 version (something like nvidia-drivers-169.04.ebuild). I think it should pick up the right version, although you might need to change a version number at the top of the ebuild if it doesn't work.
