the best way would be to mix a very little bit of black with like a gunmetal or a silver/chrome color not pure chrome though.

Yeah, your on track. Lay down a thin coat of transparent black, back with chrome, back that with black backer.

I "accidentally" got a metallic charcoal silver finish on my M3 body a few weeks ago. I intended to paint it Pearl... and though I had ti coated pretty good, then I added some white behind it.... then i decided to tint the windows. Well.. I'll be damned but it didn't turn the pearl into a silver charcoal metallic instead.. it looks alright - just FAR from pearl, so I imagine you can use window tint as well since it is somewhat translucent... spray that with pearl then added a thin layer of metallic silver then black....

curious to see how that would come out.

Just lay it out on a soda bottle or CD case before the body to make sure you can replicate the color you want.

try using some spazstix window tint, then hit it with the mirror chrome. Like Maxx said, it's going to be the best with a coat of transparent black first. Post pics when done
