Black block and heads with silver/aluminum accessories, to match the outside. And tidy up hoses and wires, especially plug wires.

I used hi temp engine paint in a spray can. Seen the tv guys use primer and body color or contrasting color that they mixed.

I like the dark gray and silver theme myself. Black works too. Black doesnt show the dirt but makes it hard to find leaks.

Good luck
Dan

I powder coated all the front end drive brackets and my tubular headers in silver. That would look good on your truck.
