Hey, in my opinion it is a bit TOO blue, but still looks good and better then mine :P.

Question though, what did you use to paint it? If you used normal paint, hate to say it but the paint will start to flake and heat up on the extractors, not sure on the block but the extractors will be of main concern with peeling.

phong =P~

Well the motor ,gearbox and extractors were all acid washed then a treatment of Por15 inc Metal Ready which coats the metal with zinc phosphate
then sprayed with Hi temp enamel mixed with enamel add so should last a awhile yeh I know the paint on the extractors will gradually burn off over time

Looks alright, but a bit much blue.....a highly polished rocker cover would be a good break up, and if the headers were also HPC coated in silver.
