...Blaze orange with black lettering ought to wake up the most tired of
Field Day operators. Not sure if it would be hazardous to anyone's health
or eyesight though.
Or maybe signal red with blue lettering. That _would_ kill a person's eyes.

Call it boring, but a dark gun metal gray with white lettering looks very
good. Not too loud, not too soft-spoken. Good even application of paint
and it looks quite professional.

Much can be done with auto body paints and the variety of colors. I guess
it all boils down to personal use, and the application for the rig, and
whether you want or need people to take notice of it.

My two milliwatts worth...
