I think the dark grey would look good. silver is going to look too shiny on the already metalic grey. There are alot of pre-modded cases that come with silver vinyl decoration on the side and it looks kind of cheap. if you use something metalic, use gold, golden leaf is shiny gold vinyl that can be bought in a square and cut to size and shape. very good stuff. the gold on the dark grey would look mad, particularly if you did sharp tribal patterns in it. Paint on cases doesnt work all that well as it doesnt stick to powdercoated steel. or anodised aluminum. vinyl is defitately the way to go. I had a big ugly viking carrying a giant battle hammer in a snow scene airbrushed onto a mates case back in 2002. There is about 10% of the paint left of it.
