I think I'm one of the few (only one I've seen in 10 years)

Real easy to do yourself if you have the patience to spray paint

Pull the surround (black part) and it pops out.

Remove a few bolts under the cluster and it pulls out, unplug and remove it from the car.

You'll see a series of clips that hold the plastic front to the cluster, remove that.

Then you'll see how the front part you wanna paint is attached to the cluster in a similar fashion, separate it.

Then mask off and paint how you want.

I found after painting it, it was too glossy so I hit it with a semi gloss clear coat

When I first did it I I painted way too much (and had just made the boost gauge holder as well), it looked like a sh*tty Honda.

So I painted the surround black to match the oem dash.

And I painted the surrounding area of the gauge faces black as well, less was definitely more.
