Default Painting my Gypsy Hard Top - Please suggest

I am getting a 2nd hand hard top next week and since it has a few nicks and scratches was considering getting it painted and i am considering various options.

I am not repainting the car which is currently the same color as it was when i first bought it brand new: ICY BLUE. Just asking the garage staff to paint the top before i mount it. The B-Pillar MAY be painted in the same tone as the top (open to discussion). Did a quick 1 hour job on photoshop to come out with a few color options. I couldnt complete the PS job on the 2 red options, but u shd get the idea!!

I am leaning towards the SingletTone or the Silvertop option. I couldnt replicate the shine/gloss of the silver top, but it looks quite good, atleast with a black gypsy. Another option is to stick on a waterproof faux leather covering onto the FRP (avail in Brown and Deep Black) which would help retain a Soft Top look!

Plz let me know ur thoughts.

Thanks.
I would prefer the silver one then, or let it remain white only.
I will try more if possible.

Graphite grey or a royal blue matching the varicose veins in my legs would be nice.
