I think it comes down to three colours to choose from PS-4,PS-59 and PS-Dark Blue. I like metallic colours like PS-59

yeah keeps the colour nice and bright and less transparent when held up to the light or if you run lights on the shell. so when you finish painting the blue let it dry then paint the silver thinly get even coverage then remove you masks but if your going to paint the rear lights then be very careful painting the lights and only remove those masks. I recommend masking the rear end and cutting the light shape out so you only paint the light lens. I've only just learnt this myself. then when the shell is finished remove the window masks

If I may,  
You can also seal it with black instead of silver. This will darken your blue a bit.
