Are those 3 LED's the only thing that illuminate the entire dashboard?

Did you put diff. led color bulbs for it? Or you have the 3 red ones only?

I am kinda confused whit this.

Yes you can change them to any color. Paint the needles any color you would like and you could paint the inside white housing the same color or a glossy chrome. When painting the white inside housing the same color or a darker color it makes the light come off a bit more dark and rich instead of flooded.

As for a purple, I have attempted to use a black light inside the housing with dark purple UV reactive paint and it was all good until the tiny black light burnt out. I have also painted the needles blue with dark blue or black housing and blue lights to produce a cool purple found in a lot of VW gauges.
