I did indeed. Only cost about $15 in materials (color-matched spraypaint, painter's tape, plastic drop-cloths and 100-grit sandpaper). The paint shop I went to had a book of factory car color codes, so no guessing or trial/error. The most time consuming part was masking off the reflectors. I went over them probably 8-10 times which may sound like a lot but took a few minutes for each coat to dry. I can post pics when I get home.
