How exactly do you do the invisible tail lights?

I remember seeing an article a year or 2 ago about it and they used some sort of plexi glass or somthing and sanded it to the contour of the tail. Then they had led's in the back of it or somthing and then painted right over it to match the rest of the tail and you literally couldnt see them until the bike was on. Any more info on how to do this would be great!
I would like to do this but just with an led strip in a cafe tail.
Like this..

Bike off, cant really see it...


Bike on, now you can see tail light threw the paint...

^ + make the outside lens big enough that you could shave the joint between the fender and plexi.



it would be interesting to see if it could be done with a color other then black

They do. I've seen them in green and red. I get the main idea but it's the light shining threw the paint that perplexes me

i dunno.... candy MABY?? black is easy, vht tint spray. chrome would be kinda easy too, one way mirror the inside of the plexi. but you wouldnt be able to bodywork the joint
