    i think the best way to go for a clean, but not rice look is high heat aluminum...

    yea "aluminum" is a color, lol

    but it'll clean up the block nice without looking too extreme...

    i have seen capital high performance painted a gsr block ceramic alminum, looks sweet, black is also good, you can hide all those grease and grime.

    You should paint inside your engine compartment black and your block and vavle cover the color of you car. Not sure if that is rice but it give the kinda uniform look i think.
