Forum member Patchules has done it. He did it in a way it's not apparent at eye level.
Send him a pm.

Yea I painted mine with Henry elastomeric roof paint. HENRY HE287SF046 Solar-Flex, Gallon, White, Elastomeric Roof Coating https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BZ607G..._uU4rzb98QZMCC
Made a huge difference this summer and I live in Phoenix, AZ it will be 121 degrees here tomorrow. Unfortunately I don't have a laser thermometer for more empirical data. I did something a little different than a solid white top though...🙂
