Painting of IMS plasic tank

So has anyone painted their IMS plastic fuel tank another color and how did it work for you?? The reason I'm asking is I have a ten gallon tank on my 2008 KLR which is presently black in color and I would like to paint it to match the rest of the plastics. Any comments would help..
