what color brakets for a yellow block?

painting my sbc block and heads yellow. already painted all the brackets for the alternator and a/c black, as well as my headers. i think it will look hokey with them black but i already painted my alternator natural "as cast grey". think the brackets should be that color too. how bout some designer ideas. pretend youra homo.
not really, i'm not painting anything pink or green so be real. either leave them black or paint them grey.

Yeah I had a yellow engine in the S10, until I had the truck painted Purple/Orange, thought the yellow would sorta clash with Orange.

Mine looked real nice with chrome, I know it wasn't a option, but chrome is the way to go with yellow.

Flourescent black

Metallic chrome

Two tone clear

Would all look great, but verrry few paint stores carry them colors for some reason.

Ifth you askth me, bucking social normss is sthe key!
I would go with thFord blue, and a simple yet faboulous sphthinkleing of black to make not only the engine feel good, but make the whole compartment cozy and cute!

I know if I had big, powerful, cthevy under the hood, I would want to make is as visthually sthunning as possible!!!

Or, you can just get tacky and make your engine lifelessth and unoriginal by going with shomthing sho atrocious as "schevy orange" - I mean, HELLO!, am I the only one who cares enough to ensure my little v-8 is sitting snug and happy in his little home?

I sthure hope not!
sthixty eight!

How about some 95 ford Mystic Pearl, Sherwin williams, about $2500.00 per gallon, just for the base color. It changes from Purple to blue to green depending on the angle. Or House of color Chameleon paint. Several different color changing selections, only about $600 a quart, just a thought.

Black and yellow come to mind as a good combination..can't go wrong with nature's natural colors.

I like the yellow and black. If you think you have too much black in there, use the yellow on your brackets. I know it sounds crazy, but when you're using two colors, "layering" them is the trick. I ran blue/silver then blue/chrome......when done correctly, it looks very well balanced. Stick with your two colors....it's gonna look sweet!

I like the yellow and black scheme on the motor. Some where along the years, there was black chrome and if you can find someone that still does it, send your steel valve covers (even better, cast aluminum) If no black chrome, have steel valve covers blued as in guns. Done correctly, they will be black and will not rust, or chip for years to come.
