shoot, that's not mine... I'm a dark color man, myself. I just saw that thing on e-bay and thought of all the discussions about Graham and his fascination with yellow. The ad says it's powder coated, though. There's another pic of it on the ad of the inside and that's powder coated too!
What looks good is to use a file and file the letters and the ribs so they show through as aluminum, just a bit of detail. It also looks good if you use black wrinkle paint and file the details.
I of course prefer the yellow!
