Default Thinking of painting some stuff under the hood

Well as I'm thinking aboat some of my summer plans for the truck I've been kicking around the ideal of dressin the engine bay up a little. What I was thinking of doing was painting the wiper fluid lid, antifreeze/coolant lid, and fuesbox lid red to match the truck. I also want to paint the throttle body cover red and maybe in black lettering do like a 3.0L or something on there. I've seen other trucks with painted accents under the hood and some I like and some I don't. I also got some of my interior stuff red and I really like how it turned out. Anyways what are your guys thoughts on it, do you think it would look alright? If you got something going on in your engine bay post a pic.

Heres what my engine bay looks like now

That looks really good! I love the new cover!

Thats pretty much what I'm going for except I want to get a small brush and see if I can paint the lettering on the lids black. I wanted to do the chrome too but he has alot of chrome on his truck and I don't think I have enough for it to look right, so I think I'll still do my lettering black
