Aside from painting them, there are also aftermarket fog lights that have a black, apparently unpainted housing. I see them on eBay all the time but haven't been able to get a clear answer as to the quality of the wiring. Honda has retrofit fog lights for the base Fit that also have a black housing. You can find them here.

Mine is unpainted and just black plastic like the same stuff as the lower grill.
Not sure what type of plastic, but they are original Honda fog-lights.

The fog light itself has the following markings:

SAE FOO
STANLEY P5299L

Type of bulb is:

Philips H11 LL
Germany M519
12v 55W 12362 LL
25m U DOT

Guess you have two things to take care of
1: Is the stock fog light same then it can be installed in this cove
2: how is the stock fogs installed in sprots as to install this you have to cut the
bumper. See link for installing

If you need dimensions let me know. I have my fogs in the box here waiting for Xmas morning to open the box and install. Got them from Middlegate Honda they have them on sale for C$180 + tax
