FYI for those interested, it looks like dipyourcar.com will be releasing an "Anthracite" color in cans within the next 4-6 weeks.

That's pretty much the exact color I was looking for.
I think just about any shade of silver/black will work with silver. It just depends on the look you're going after. As richirich said "its the whole theme".

Another one of my favorites is simomcpw's X.

Here's a photoshop of dark silver he was thinking about.

Here's what he ended up with.

The darker the shade, the meaner/aggressive the look IMO.

I think I'm going to be doing that bronze gold on my 87's just to change it up a bit.

whats the difference between the gloss and pearl? I purchased gloss for my black dip.

the glossifier is just that gloss, the more coats you put the glossier it will be, the pearl has somewhat of a gloss to it but also has that pearl hue, so black dip with gloss will look really black with pearl no so much.
