Somewhere around the edges of the cluster, you should find several screws, remove all of them. You should then be able to (carefully) pull the cluster out enough to get your hand inside to disconnect the wires.

Yes, do as TangDar says. You may have to unscrew the speedometer cable from under the dash first. If you do that then the cluster will come out farther to get at the wires more easily. Put an old rag on the steering column too because you don't want to scratch up the paint or scratch the cluster. I know on the 65 standard cluster the chrome border scratches pretty easily

Unless you have one of the Jim Osborne reproduction wiring diagrams or assembly manuals, make sure you tag your light bulbs and connectors where they go before you remove them from the cluster.

While it's out, take the lens bezels off and paint the needles with fluorescent orange paint. Make sure to put a small piece of cardboard behind the needles so you don't get paint on the faces. The needles are delicate, so be careful. You'll be able to see them much better if you do this.
