Thanks man, appreciate that.

For the gauge cluster: remove the driver side kick panel (under your fuse panel by the foot rest) there is one bolt you will see at the top. Remove it and pull that portion towards you. Next, remove the two screws above the gauges. They are more like push in clips. Once those are out, snuggly but carefully pull towards you on the bottom light gray part of the day. You will tell when it pops out. Do the same for the black gauge/upper dash portion.pull toward anf down. One it is loose, you will have to wiggle it out between the steering wheel. It's somewhat flexible so you can bend the upper part that is over the gauges a big to clear it. Tilting the steering wheel down helps a bit too. Then, once its out, you'll see the clips that pictured in the OP.
Here's the link I used. It's not for the same project, but it gets the cluster off. Lol
