Has anyone tried painting 2014 grand cherokee headlights' black surface?

I own a white 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland. I wish the small black surface on my headlight matches the body color. Has anyone try to paint/modify that small area? Thanks~

You can take them to a shop and have them color matched. I wouldn't go cheap on something like this, its not like a 10 year old carolla youre painting.

You could try Plasti Dip as a cheap trial.
One $8 can, hard to go wrong.

I like the black there. There's already too much white & chrome on the front end in my opinion.

Here's a quick photoshop I did.

I like the photochop much better! I hope jeep does something different for 2015. Honestly I'd like to know why they pushed so hard for headlight washers in the first place. They barely work, they cover your shiny truck with smurf piss, they add weight and complexity and will likely break.
