What color should I accent my engine compartment with

I am thinking about painting some of the engine parts on my truck over the next little while but I can't decide what color to go with. I will be sanding/painting some of the plastic parts. And since I can sandblast anything I might get teh CAC tubes and a few other things powdercoated. Let me know what color you think...:shrug:

Here is how it looks now...

Aaron I always liked the silver and black theme of your truck. It gives it that military look. So I would just continue with silver and black.

Doug is Russ's hero....

I also think the silver and black theme would look good.

Blue would be my next choice

I think red does a fair job of accenting the engine compartment. My .02.
