Paint for plastic portlight surrounds

I want to repaint the yellowed and discolored but otherwise serviceable portlight surrounds on my H38.

Has anyone done this in the past and can recommend a suitable color matching paint?

Suggest you Wash them thoroughly, rinse and dry.
Apply a top quality primer like STIX
The primer is the key.
Paint as you wish.
Don't use epoxy paint as the UV will destroy it.

I know there are plastics paints specifically for this purpose. I've gone down this road on a few airplanes I've owned where what looks like the exact same type of plastic has yellowed. In that case I used paints from SEM that were color-specific.

I'm looking for the same color matching specific plastics paints.
