Well, first of all, what do you mean by "manage"? Are you asking about the creation of a framework within which to use OpenGL's features, or just about the use of those features themselves?

Otherwise, I think that this depends primarily on how far you want to go. At the simplest, you could add a steel-like texture to your parts (with appropriate UV coordinates assigned to the vertices, of course), and set up a basic light, probably a directional one. On top of that you could add a variety of techniques that might add to the realism of the scene, from simple material settings up to full metal shaders.

Simply put, how far do you want to go?
