Help! should I paint satoshi inner grill black or silver!

Trying to decide if I should paint satoshi inner grill (the part that took all the cutting, bondoing, and sanding) black or silver to match outer grill and truck. I think black will look good and deep and hide imperfections better but all color matched look nice also.
Please tell me what you think and I'll go with majority rule or maybe I'll just do a couple rounds of rock, paper, scissors! gloss or flat black?

Update:
Almost done with my Satoshi - Thanks for the advice, I made the inner grill BLACK!

See pic

Thanks for the replies! Yeah I wanted to go color matched but after I used a little black primer to see if I had more spots to touch up with the sander and bondo I decided it look nice in black and maybe enhances the depth of the satoshi. Almost done just have to spray a little more and get my mesh. Thanks all.

Update: I chose black and almost done!

Just about finished with my Satoshi. Here's a picture of it. I will have more pic and of how I mounted my fogs soon. I got the grill from partsgeek.com ($40), the mesh from customcargrills.com ($50) (they cut the mesh specifically for the Satoshi and their mesh is super nice!) and some paint, epoxy, bondo and other supplies ($15-20). So about $110 for a colormatched satoshi grill! I ordered the large "TOYOTA" emblem from I think toyotaparts.com ($44) should be here soon. I decided to do it myself even though my time is limited, because I had people who would build them but they wanted $200-250 for usually an unfinished product or in some cases I had to supply all the parts. Don't get me wrong, these guys did great work and believe me it would be worth the money because this is such a labor intensive product but I just wanted to save some money and learn how to do it. I did it during some late night hours, and any few seconds of free time I got. I hope you like it.

how did you mount the mesh? also, did customcargrills cut you a little bit more mesh to compensate?? or was it exact cut?

they gave me ALMOST exact cut... in doing so, it doesnt mount sturdy ... and they havent done anything about it... even after i showed them pictures and gave them measurements.... oh wells... been looking at homer's mesh sales...
