I did get a nice piece of plexiglass which I like to use as underground to work on, with a dremel and a ledlight you can create this:

True, but this is the result with only 1 LED, more will be build in so the effect will be seen better with more daylight.

By the way, we race in a local pub and that is not lighted very much.

It has 4 blue leds, the wires are glued away into sleeves made on the side and has 3 compartments to store screws and bodyclips.

Very nice!!!
I would love to find the time to do that. Sandblasting can be done using a mask for the Logo and it takes almost no time to etch large areas smoothly. Cheap sandblasters cost about $30 US. All you need to add is some compressed air.

Obviously you have too much free time! :D :D
