Edit the file /etc/DIR_COLOURS. In the section which begins #Attribute codes: you will find comments listing the foreground and background colours, followed by blocks of text listing filetype and colour codes. Find the .sh code, and edit the colours to your preference. If .sh doesn't exist, add it to the list.
