You have to take off the radio bezel (not completely off, just loosen it enough) by removing the 2 7mm screws. Take off the pieces beneath the steering wheel with 3 screws (7mm) + removing the hood pop cable (7mm I think). Then you must remove the metal sheet fro behind the pieces underneath the steering wheel by taking out the 4 screws (8mm I believe). Then the three bolts that are above the gauges (7mm).
Then to get your guages out there are 4 more small screws on each corner of the gauge cluster. But I believe that plastic piece you want to paint is pretty hard to get to. It's stuck to the plastic clear top.
Gauges faces are easy to install though.
