If you are not sure get the black sparkle ones. If you aren't satisfied with the results you can always give them a good bath in some paint thinner.





The extender on the left was originally red like the piece on the right. When I changed builds a while back I didn't want a red theme but had all these red fittings, so threw them all into some paint thinner.

Just make sure you take the O-rings off and be mindful of the paint that's inside the fitting if you decide to go that route. Took maybe 45 minutes to do about 20 fittings and pieces that way start to finish.

BP Silver Shining should be a closer match.

Their Black Sparkle range looks basically silver but with a translucent smoke finish giving them a much darker look.
