im pretty sure you can remove the orange by scraping it off gently with a blade then you can colour to whatever you like

Take the cluster apart, very gently sandpaper the needles off, e paint them into your desired colour, stick them back on an put said cluster back together.

Someone should make a doco out of this.

Try acetone-free nail polish remover if you can find it. Plastics tend not to like acetone much.

any paint will do, as it doesn't need to lightup, just reflect the right colour. Means of course you'll need to keep white bulbs/LEDs.
