painting engine parts, what to do?

I have a newly built 383 engine with afr aluminium heads and an aluminium intake.
I am going to paint the engine block and transmission in the same metallic as the truck. The engine will sometimes be visible from the outside without opening the hood.

What would you guys recommend, should i paint the heads and intake also?
or should i only paint the heads or only the intake.
I can not figure out what would look best. The truck and engine block will be in a dark brown metallic color.

Maybe some pictures would help.

It is going to be a street-rod style truck. Going for the classy look.

I would paint the block and tranny and let the heads and intake alone. Then you will have some shiny with your paint.
