How to change individual PDF file icon?

Don't want to change the default, just a few individual PDF icons. Is this possible? I could stick them in a folder and change the folder but I don't want to do that.

I get it is not possible, as the pdf icon is per class, and there is no customization tab in the properties menu of a pdf file.
