In the back of your cluster, where the electrical connections get plugged in, Theres going to be a bunch of little metal pins sticking out that go into the cluster.
Once we figure out which wires supply the power to the different needles, you'll get two jumper wires, connect them to the negative and positive ends of a AA battery and watch the needle. It'll jump to a certain spot. Once you know where that spot is, you can take the needle off.
Then, sand the needles and paint them or whatever.
Then, put the needles back on in the position where they came off while the battery leads are connected again.
the alternate is to assemble the whole thing after the fact minus the clear cover, and while driving, use a GPS or something to find out your speed and physically move the needle to that speed on the cluster.
