Matching Factory Finish on Small 1911 Parts?

I like my new Remington R1 so far, but there are a few things I'd like to change. I'd like a longer/wider "paddle"-style thumb safety, and perhaps a beavertail grip safety.

My question is, do I try to find aftermarket parts that match the R1's finish, do I make all my changes and then have the entire gun refinished (maybe using NP3+ or some other high-speed/low-drag finish), or do I just live with any mismatch I end up with?
