Default Painting my mountain bike

I'm getting tired of the red/yellow color scheme on my bike; I just don't like the yellow anymore. I found a red spring to replace the yellow one. I would love to replace the yellow crankset with a chrome one but chrome is hard to come by.So my question is what color should I paint the crankset? Black? Red?







I'm also not sure on what to do with the pedal colors.



Has anyone ever used anything like this on metal?

I liked the McRonald's scheme.

But i'd go with black. "Chrome" paint isn't really chrome, it's more of a metallic silver.
