Fuel proof pearl white cowl

Hi guys.
Years ago, I built a 1/4 scale sig clipped wing cub for my dad for his birthday. In the interest of being unique, I covered it in ultra cote pearl blue and pearl white in the traditional scheme. Since horizon does not make paint to match its pearl covering, I painted the cowl with Pactra racing finish paint, then cleared it with fuel proof paint. Over the years it had discolor on the entire cowl. I just ordered a fiberglass specialties cowl for it and need some suggestions on how to paint this one so it doesn't discolor. I thought of automotive paints, but am not sure if the nitro fuel will eat through it.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Todd
