Not you John, I meant Bill.
They stand out much better on a light coloured hood. You can see the louvres more defined.
On Bill'* dark hood they are more subdued.

I must say I'm very pleased with the result on John'* SSEi, but I'm still holding out hope for the Zilla when I get things repainted and the bright aluminum mesh installed. I think it'll show. Subtle, effective, but still show.

You could always paint the screen white, so you see the white peeking out the green vents.

Screen is already bright silver. I think white would look gay, personally. Parrticularly when the hood is up, I'd like the screen to match the SC cover (it'* already the same screen).

Honestly, I think the bright aluminum screen will show better than white. I'm not trying to make these things JUMP out at people, but I don't want them to be invisible, either.

Keeping them silver to match the cover gets my vote.
