Yes, the LT-1 is painted black, or at least it is in my MC.
As mentioned earlier, I would definitely encourage painting the engine. It may look pretty now, but that will go away quickly once you start using it. I like the silver idea; that would add to the unique vibe that this boat already has being an Anniversary Edition.
