Hey what does everyone think for colouring the rear garnish???

I was going to spray mine with gun metal grey, and redo the pillar trims too.

But i had a thought, would it look good in silver to match my car??

I just have no imagination. hehe

I'm thinking to do it to suit the long term coulor scheme when i paint the entire car.

I'm thinking that i'll do the garnish in a kind of Gun Metal Grey to be lighter than it is, but with metallic, the car will be AU silver, and the grey moulds down the side of the car will be dye'd a little darker than its faded look now. The window surrouns will be matched to the Gun Metal Grey on the garnish, and the stripe mould thing in the grey side moulds will be black.

What you think? I'm not sure?

I'm s**t as at imagining what something will look like, and i don't know how to photoshop stuff.
