red or white is the best looking colors for a red celi. I am going to get mine painted a bright red. I don't know what kind of paint to use thought cause I think I am having mine done professionally.

If you do it yourself it will cost you all of$8.00. 1200 degree paint from autozone is $3.99 a can. I did it...it looks great.

Yeah, I say use silver or red. In my opinion silver is sick! I used that color for my engine plastics and I have a black car. It really contrasts the darker color of my paint job. Good luck thumbsup
