It's definitely gray. I've seen it on my own bright silver metallic '05 WK when revealed by a rock chip.

Re: Paint Question, know what color primer is under silver ?

don't get excited WC angryminnow asked if all primers where grey,just answering his question but when i goto the paint supply house i can get red, grey and black....

i'm using grey on the current bike project, on this it doesn't matter because it's gonna get a black base, airbrushed artwork, misting of silver metalflake then a few layers of dark green candy and lots of clear
