    Need some advice on my old car.

    I am ready to bolt up the the pullies and brackets today, except I don't know which color to paint them. The brackets hold the alternator, serpertine belt system and power steering pump on.

    My engine is bronze, my pullies are polished aluminum; do I paint the brackets bronze, black or have them powerdercoated polished aluminum?




    I just want the engine bay to look as bad ass as possible considering my paint and body will be neglected this go around. The bronze really "pops" with the Vette blue the car is, but the engine bay is black. I just don't know. HELP!


    Sorry Mods if this isn't LS1 related, but its stressing me out and I needed some help.

    I always use semi-gloss black on engine brackets and such. To me, these items should blend in rather than pop. Plus black will compliment the other colors nicely.

    agree with Jeff. Always painted my brackets black.

    Awesome! Thank you guys!

    Also helps with the fact that the power steering bracket had stains on it from leaks and the black will hide it better.

    Satin, semi-gloss or flat black usually looks the best. As said, they should blend.
