    I would do gloss black personally. But there are plenty of othe colors that would look good too.

    personally I would go gloss color of your exterior paint. I think going a different color looks cheap.

    My friend who owns a vette shop pulled his ls1 out to do a forged 427 so while it was under construction I went buy and he wanted to make the engine bay look better his car is black and it was unpainted or scratched. So I painted it all ddupont chroma base bli and cleared it looks awesome now. Painting the block torch red and the cradle and arms are now brite silver.
