Need input on color for cyclone hood insert

I am installing this cyclone hood insert and need help on deciding a color. I received it and it was scratched up pretty bad so I tried to polish it but it turned out too shiny and I couldnt get it to look right so I decided to paint it. The pic is photoshop so just general idea to get input on the color scheme of blue on black. I also plan on adding blue/black corbeau seats and painting my front and rear truss the same blue on black axle. Please send opinions, good, bad, ugly, thanks!

Also this is not my jeep just similar example, and another option rolling around is satin black on gloss black hood.

Imo if you want to add blue maybe just do the sides or middle of the insert and do the rest satin black. but i dunno how that'd look either. Vinyl would be an easy/clean looking way to go also, couldn't be too expensive to get a place to wrap it for you.

Or paint it satin black and have a blue sticker made with a cool design and slap it on there

Im not too sure about just the sides or middle, i dont want the racing stripe look. I really dont want vinyl either, been there and dont wanna go back. I do like the idea for the matte black with sticker though. I have mostly poison spyder stuff, front and rear stinger, full cage, etc and i like their hood spyder emblem, thanks for the idea, just not sure if i want it black and blue sticker or blue with black sticker....ughhh decisions, i guess thats why the jeep is never done
