Bringing back an old thread. I just did this on my 2008 is-f and it came out great. Almost matches my black pearl license plate frame perfectly. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for the black pearl look.

Here are some pictures of mine. Could only do one at a time on my phone. Could have gone a little darker but wanted to keep kind of lighter on dark car. The license plate frame is actually a black pearl frame.
