what color should i paint my flame deep v? FINISHED

i bought a pair of flame velocity deep v's in the beginning of the year for a conversion. it was cheaper than a single colored deep v. i never really liked the look. so im stripping it and painting it a different color. since now i have such a wide variety of colors i dont know which one would look best. my red deep v will be given to my brother and i will strip the set with the flames.

right now im leaning towards
white w/ glow in the dark


or

polished.
sorry for the big pic. only pic i could find.
my bike:


LMK YOUR OPINIONS.

[EDIT] Thx HandsomeRyan for the chalk board idea. turned out the be AWESOME.

What's wrong with how it looks? It's only going to look lame if you stop, which you should never do.

+1 for Glow-n-the-dark.

I'd also like to see rims done with "chalkboard" paint.

diarrhea with hints or corn all in it so they know your not in it for looks...plus they'll know which skid marks on the road are yours

polish it or go black in all honesty...unless you think you can pull of the diarrhea...

polished is worth the effort. or glow in the dark.
