Default Learning basic on first body! What color to choose for back up?

Hi!

I am experimenting on my first body with Pactra Gold color. I did three thin coats already and I keep on reading about these colors to use to "back up" the paint before removing the body protector thing. Depending on the color, people will use either white or black it seems. I am not sure what to use for the color gold. Its a E revo body with its stripes and such already on the body when I bought it. I love how sparkly gold it is, but not sure what backing color I should use to protect it and keep the color that way. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I would back it in silver and then cover it with the Pactra white fluorescent cover coat.
