need opinions, what color insert.

As title says. Im getting ACS Composites TL1 insert, bolts on to LT/SS stock hood and was wondering what color i should get it painted. I have an IBM(imperial blue) and originally i wanted satin black but since its such a dark color idont know how good it would look but that option is not ruled out. Before i get PM's on what insert im talking about i'll post the link. Also, i know some people dont agree on putting "zl1" parts on a v6/v8 but im doing it so id rather not go of topic and people say how its "stupid" and what not. link to insert: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=254901&page=3
SO what color guys!

UPDATE: PICS ( got the insert in the mail today 12/19, black primer)

it kinda depends on what route you are going to go with the car.

I have an IBM and i hate chrome so it all came off and i have been turning everything flat/satin black...

cant wait to see pictures of what ever you decide

Black or a Charcoal Metallic. Or you could go hot wheels ZL1 and go with White.
