Need some help to preserve paint

OK So I am starting my project of building a smoker from a 55 gallon drum. My question to you guys is that I want ot preserve the original art on the drum, this portion will be the smoker portion and will likely see temps in the 250 degree area for hours on end which I am pretty sure is not going to hurt the paint at all. My question is can I clear it with either automotive paint or another kind to just help with keeping it looking good longer? The portion with he actual flame in it is a seperate part that I am less worried about. Another question is can high heat paint be color matched that you know of?

This is kind of the general idea but mine will be slightly different with the burn box a little farther away.
