Engine cover

I'm thinking about painting my engine cover. Not sure what color to go with. My car is silver with black wheels. So far my options that I'm considering are red/black, silver/black, or yellow/black. I haven't seen a yellow/black or silver/black one so far. Can I get some opinions and/or suggestions.

I bought some rust-oleum plastic primer at OSH, then ordered 2 cans of body paint from Automotivetouchup.com

Re: Engine cover

I forgot to say that I also got a "paint pen" for the lettering from OSH too...and my paint shop wanted a lot of $$ to paint the engine cover and valve covers like $350. They are great, but that's a lot of 'car parts' money...lol

That's what I thought. Thanks to you all for the motivation to get the job done! I will be going to the Fast Fords Forever show in L.A. in a couple weeks, and this is the boost the car needed. I will also paint the valve covers like the pic, but I am hoping to find some chrome/billet spears for the engine cover, or make my own with polished aluminum...another project.

Re: Engine cover

Well, here is another update, black intake, used flat-black high-temp spray that I bought for the read-end. Painted the radiator cover and fuse box, added pony from my 96 Cobra (RIP) that I originally had on the billet grill. Just need the spears and I'm done.

I liked the black spears on the side. Why did you remove them?
