Matte gray is definitely the one to go with.

C&C does paint jobs. PM if you need assistance. Id do flat grey if anything. Personally, I'd leave it as is!

Do matte grey. I did half my car for fun just to see what it looks like. Looked amazing. 3M, Oracal all have matte grey, but if you want a matte grey with a metallic in it, try Meguiars Wraptivo. You can see an example of it on the Active Autowerke/Vorsteiner car. Downside to that vinyl is that it must be installed by one of their certified dealers, but I think StickerCity on van nuys migh also carry it. For install, try StickerCity, Premier, or Balistek.

Try not to do matte white, kinda played out and its very hard to keep clean. Matte black is played out, but satin black looks much nicer imo. A matte dakar yellow would be pretty nice as would a matte grey of a darker hue similar to that of sparkling graphite,

But be careful not to choose a gray that looks like primer.
