I'm pretty sure it's a hard transparent orange plasic that is sprayed black for the read outs.
I looked into doing this my self but you need to make your own bit of plastic and paint it your self.
Not an easy task (to make it look good anyway)
My way of doing it will be to get some transparent plastic and make a template to spray it white on the main parts and blue on the readout bits.
to make the white blank out the light correctly you need to use a thick plastic based paint.

Can the same type of thing be done to the EA Cluster? do they have the replaceable orange filter?

I have converted my EA GL dash with red LED's, I know for a fact that the GL cluster has no filter in it, whatever colour the bulb is is what colour will come out, but since they painted the dials in the orange colour blue wont turn out good at all, I tried blue leds and the dials turned out a really light purple colour that you could hardly see.

If you want to do it the cheap way but doesnt turn out as bright as LED's you can buy slip on bulb covers from repco, autobarn etc that just go over the bulbs
