    Do you have a trim color? IE, something inside that's painted, or differently colored anything or is it all white and black?

    wrinkle black the areas that are currently silver on the valve cover now
    wrinkle red the areas that are currently red

    or spay the whole valve cover with a silver color then do the same color scheme with a translucent "candy" red and a "candy" black and make it look anodized

    The gold looks good and I would try to match the rims. since your hood will be up and it will be matching.
