Default What color to buy

I've just bought the white fiberglass canopy for my heli and I'm wondering what color I should buy to paint it. It has some varmish on it so it's glossy. I don't know what to use to hold on it.

Thanks all in advance.

I use automotive type urethanes like House of Kolor, through airbrush/guns then clear coat.

Are you going at this with cans or do you have any sort of gun?
