I've done it (and its not that hard). Basically you need to clean your lights well, wet sand them with a fine-grit sandpaper, and then give them a single coat. Let 'em dry overnight and hose 'em down again. Repeat until they're as dark as you'd like.

If they're not shiny enough, try doing a more thorough job wetsanding. The smoother the surface, the more light reflection you'll get and the more uniform it'll be.
