    Default Primer for Star Silver?

    Anybody know which primer best for Star Silver. White or Grey?

    Would it make any difference to the finished colour i.e. lighter or darker?

    Have sprayed mudflaps with white plastic primer then grey over that.

    Rear valance has come in grey plastic.

    Splitter and skirts are white fiberglass.

    Star Silver 2 seems a little lighter than 3. Any opinions?

    When I've touched up with Star Silver 3, it always seems a little darker than
    the original.
