Might finally get to paint my car!

ok...2 weekends back my car got nailed by some good sized hail and so once I clear up the estimate with my agent I should be getting the proper treatment done to my car which means the car needs to be painted.
I'm planing on getting a carbon fiber OEM hood and I want paint the outsides silver so that the middle hump is carbon and the roof inbetween the 2 weather strips black or gunmetal.

I'm not sure tho if I want to do the whole roof to match it with the windows or to do it just between the strips. Also you think I should do black or like a gunmetal type color to match it more with the carbon fiber on the hood?

Thanks

Definitely go with black, gunmetal roof on silver looks like mismatched paint.

thanks for the comments...my dad likes just the roof too. So thats what I'm prolly gonna end up doing. And I might as well just do black to blend with the windows since they are black.

I'm in bridgeton right by the airport.
I'm hoping I can get it in the shop as soon as I get off of school on the 11th. So hopefully in less than a month it will be done.
