instrument gauges

Does anyone know how to get to the instrument gauges? I want to apply an overlay, can't seem to figure out how to get there. I have the instrument cluster out, the green part of the back off, and now I'm stumped. Any help will be appreciated.

Yeah, I found it later. This stuff is simple when you know what you're doing.used: I now have a silver-carbon overlay on the gauges. Helps break up all the black.

Anybody know how to replace the illumination of the odometer? It has burned out on mine. I don't see any obvious odometer bulbs in those pics.

I think they are marked on the back once you take the cluster out. I didn't really pay attention though. There were some places marked "3w", "5w", etc. Probably location of bulbs.
