Primer - Black vs. Gray

I am finally getting close to giving my chevelle some color but am wondering about primer color. My final color is a dark blue metallic. Which primer color should I use, gray or black?
Thanks
J

You typically want to go with what ever color will more closely match your final color, in your case that would be black. It will cover better and if scratched the primer won't stand out as much.
