authentic/correct part colors for 1551 chevy 1/2 ton truck Sign In

I am restoring a 1951 chevy truck, I know the frame will be black. What color should the front spindles, all brake backing plates, all brake drums, steering box, master cylinder, be. The truck had an original 216 (stovebolt) but now has a 235, what color grey should the engine be and what parts on the engine should be a different color/ and what color. ie valve cover, water pump, canister oil filer, timming cover etc. Any info would be great, I am new to this site.
Regards
Phil

Thank you I'll try to sift though the info, I'm redoing a 1948 mahogany boat right now so I was hoping someone had some quick answers, as theboat is the top priority right now.

Gettin' old - you guys scare me! Primary car - 1989 and oldest is 1948!

Some "Rip Van Winkle" effect ??
