I'm just abouy to put mine back in (I'll post pics soon). My boat is white with lime green and purple stripes, so I painted the blocks, heads and intakes lime green. everything else (valve covers, pulleys, exhaust, brackets, power steering pumps and oil coolers) I had powder coated purple. Left the flame arestors and risers stainless. Bilge is white. looks VERY cool, and didn't cost that much. I also replaced al the faseners with new stainless ones (cost less than $50.00) just to totaly clean it up. Good luck. Be waiting for your pics when your done.
