Yes I did. I scraped it off with a small screw driver. I tried sanding first but it scuffed up the plastic too much. I would recommend using a small screw driver. It is much easier to do if you have the gauges themselves out of the cluster. I have a new cluster on the way here so that I can steal the gauges out of it so I can repeat this process since I painted my current gauge needles red and don't like the way it turned out... like sh_t! The needles are red, but you can see pitting and sags in the paint. I want it to look clean... gonna try red LEDs right behind the needles on the new gauges and see how that works. I'm also gonna try and see what it looks like without taking off the green film first, I'll keep ya posted.
