adrst2.3 Here's a quick breakdown...
An led has a positive and negative so what you'll do is take one led and run a resistor to the positive lead then take the negative lead and solder it to the positive lead of the second led now the negative leg of the second led will be soldered to the positive leg of the third leaving you with a negative lead. Your going to do this for all the gaugeface images.

.2001.focus. im not to sure why it showed up so small the first time. but anyways the green wire would be black (ground) the yellow wire + the red dots are the led's (red leds lol) and the blue dots the resisters.
Also I have to go back and reread about the cool and hot knob but im not sure if you wrote what resister to use there, with the smd or what ever the white led is. would the ones for the red led's work 680ohm 1/2w ?
