    I would like to get my license plate frame to match the same color as the factory plastic bumper. Maybe I'm being too OCD here but it really is starting to bother me. Can anyone recommend a black rattle can paint that might match the factory textured portion of the rear bumper?

    just curious, why not simply ditch the plate frame?
    Seems to block enough of the plate to be an excuse to get pulled over & possibly ticketed.
    You could get some touch up paint for the bumper & paint an edge detail around the plate itself. A border on the plate itself.

    Welcome from NY.

    You could always go to a auto paint supply place. In NY they have a paint camera that will give the exact paint code, they make the paint and put it in a spray can for about $20. I'm sure all paint supply companies can do that. Good luck.

    Black plastidip is close in color and texture.
    I agree with that plate frame being kinda weird looking, it blocks a lot of the plate.

    Thanks for the help everyone. I agree The frame hides a little too much plate I do have another one hanging out in the garage that reveals more.
