It's too much of one color in one spot, maybe break it up a bit by having some natural finish on the engine side covers or head maybe. Or use a silver color somewhere on it.
We're already on the same wavelength. Go back to post #38 on page 3 of this thread, and you will see that I am going in exactly that direction.
Bottom of the engine and valve cover: black
Cylinder and head: bare metal
Thanks for the compliments!
