Anybody know of a paint that will stick to plastic, not bubble, and match Honda Red?

I've had good luck pressure washing an older tank to get the paint off. Haven't heard of a reliable way to paint a plastic tank and it stay for any length of time.

My tank is white and I kept my bike white for that reason even though I had a new set of side covers and fenders that were black.
