Silver stripe and silver C-one scoop on yellow Celi?

I'm kinda confused at the moment..and need some opinions.
I'm planning on buying a silver f1 fuel lid kit from Blue Batmobile, along with a silver door well kit, and a silver centerhood kit. Also, am going to buy a C-one hoodscoop, and was wondering, how would it look if I put a silver centerhood kit on and put on a C-one hoodscoop and painted it silver also? Would it all flow well together? I'd match up the silver so it wouldn't be different shades or anything..opinions?

Go with black on all those accents rather than silver. It'll be a stronger contrast and look much better thumbsup

Silver and yellow are both pretty light colors, so I don't think it'll look right.

I don't think i would do silver. Black is cool, but silver clashes with yellow.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

It's too similar to stand out. Since yellow is a light color, you need to accent it with something darker (unlike silver).

Yeah you might be able to pull off a gunmetal or hyperblack, but it'd have to be pretty dark.

I'd say black, maybe a very dark shade of silver.

actually, why not go silver and black together, if you did it right, it would look cool.

stay away from red, it will look "ricey" to lots of people.

me too...
the black would be ok, but would look better if your windows were tinted and you had dark rims.

silver goes well with just about every color... and definitely do not go w/ red.
