Lipid Label Fixation Advice

Does anyone have a favorite fixation method for light level
microscopy to preserve the cellular distribution of  fluorescently
labeled lipid analogues?  I've tried some (but not all) of the
standard immunocytochemical fixes and they result in either 
extraction or redistribution of my labels. The labels are generally
in the plasma membrane. Post or email ok.

Thanks in advance
