This is an awesome DYI - thanks for sharing.

I would like to see more pictures of people who did it already though

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.

The front did peel from I'm assuming rocks so I did purchase a black pearl emblem for the front. The back still looks as good as the first day I did it.

Time to change up the emblems... Found the rear emblem and "V8" symbol + Tamiya paint on eBay for $56 OTD.. This beats the current price I've found on ebay which someone is selling black pearl "Plated" emblems for $79 and $59.
