make a hue/desat layer above all, and desat fully.

underneath that, make some curve layers and play with the contrast, experiment, get crazy with it.....you'll eventually get what you're looking for.

than if you want to add a cool color cast or a warm cast to the silver, do so above the hue/sat layer.
