    So last time I painted my motor black except for anything that wasn't aluminum so here is my idea but I do want some other opinions

    My Idea is

    Ford racing blue block
    ceramic headers clear coated timing cover
    vt valve covers painted black with polished stripes
    aluminum heads
    what you think!!!

    My other options were

    Black Block
    Or Chevy Orange BLock

    i don't think the blue would offset the purple very well...i'd do black and let the purple paint be the only paint that stands out. I just think blue would clash.

    Whatever you do dont do chevy orange. I wouldnt go any lighter than ford blue, preferably darker. Black wouldnt be a bad idea since the car is purple. Id say dark blue or black
