Split some part components after import

Hello friends,

 

I'm new to SW so please be patient. I have a connector from manufacturer site in *.step file, that is not painted at all, everything is displayed in gray. Since I use it in PCB design, I'd love to paint it's pins in gold and body surface in black, like in reality.

 

After importing, I managed to do a crude paint, by selecting each face and apply some appearance (see attached files).

 

Now the question is: How can I group all PIN elements to one piece so I can apply colour at once? Or how can I split the part in PINS and BODY?

 

Thanks in advance,
