sorry this is so late but welcome to the forum. greetings from san antonio. but you might want to check out the pix i have on this thread Face plate for gages project.
it's not that hard at all, it's really easy. all you have to do is take apart the dash and unscrew a few bolts then you could take off the faceplate. after that just apply the tint. i used rvinyl from ebay, so it's self adhesive. it's really easy to use. i used some light smoke tint to tint my reverse lights too. came out pretty good. you could check that out here IS IT GETTING DARK IN HERE? AHHHHHHH

Wondering if our cluster is designed the same way as the SRT cluster.

There's a thread on the SRT Forums describing the how-to, the what-to-buy and where-to-get-it-from for all lighting mods with correct bulb types and such.

- How To: ALL of my lighting mods inside and out - SRT Forums - SRT4, SRT6, SRT8, SRT10 & Dodge Forum

Why not just change the bulbs rather than putting a film over the front panel? The bulbs equate to about 6-10 bucks (total) so it won't break the bank.

Thinking about it myself, just need to find the time to take things apart and give it a go once I order some bulbs.
