What color should I paint my engine plastics?

Hey everyone I got a 03 Liquid silver and I think I'm gonna paint my engine plastics but am not sure what color I wanna go with, I was thinking about painting them silver to match the car and them paint some of the grooves blue. Tell me what you think. Here's a pic under my Hood

I used dupli-color high heat with ceramic on mine...it was rated at 1200 degree...no primer needed. I used High Heat Aluminum (not silver) and then used Dupli-color High Heat clear with ceramic as well (that was rated at 500 degree though). It came out just like that pic that Spread Eagle posted. I tried silver but it looked kinda cheap...the aluminum color looks ALOT better.
