    I use bright blue engine paint.

    This blue looks kick azz with a dark back ground, so does red, and tan. Tan shows grungy hand prints easier though.

    The cage in my old K10 was black but I had silver padding on it. With the truck being dark gray the exposed black parts of the cage would "disappear" but the silver padding stood out decent.

    I would think silver would mix good with your green. The brighter colors can be neat looking but like stated they can show dirt/grease easy.

    Flat black truck, machine grey cage. Black would have disappeared...and every other color I thought of seemed fruity in person. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
