    Thanks thats what I originally planned on doing but had so many friends say leave it black. I have red 5.3L and silver Vortec emblems that will go on the rise and i think will make it look sick

    Paint it, your friends are wrong, unless you like the ricer look. Nice hood by the way, I like it.

    I also say paint to match, but the center raised section should be painted silver, IMO. It would look so bad ass not only will any ricer in front of you explode from too much awesome, but random chicks will run out in front of your truck and flash you, and not because your headlights are bright or anything, but because they just want you to see some boobage. But, if you don't want to see boobage, you should just leave it black.

    I agree 100% with SurrealOne, that is exactly what I was going to suggest and then I saw that he had already. And your friends are wrong or jealous and they don't want your truck looking any better than it does now. Two tone can look great if done right and people like SurrealOne and I have very good taste. Good luck and yes that was a great choice on the hood.
