Colour Coding Engine Bay, What Colour?

Hey Guys,

Im going to start doing some tidying up of the engine bay, colour coding etc. The car itself is Galaxy Blue and im after some suggestions for a complementary colour to paint my rocker cover and plastics (pod filter box, fuse box cover, resevoir, belt cover etc) under the bonnet. I could always go with Galaxy but i wouldnt mind something that will stand out a bit when the bonnet is open, maybe something a bit lighter like liquid silver. I also plan to have some chrome/polished in the bay for my intake pipe etc. Any ideas guys?

Cheers,
Brad
