Custom powder coat color for VMR V701?

Which would look best on a Monaco Blue e92? The default is Gunmetal, cuz that's what color this last set is. But I can pay extra and get it powder coated to another color. Or powder coated silver.

Here are links to some of the colors:

Thanks for your input!!

This isn't Monaco Blue but hopefully it can give you an idea of a dark blue on GM V701's.

Feel free to let us know if you need any help.
