Make sure it doesn't stay bare metal for to long get some oil of choice on it so it doesn't start to rust up

Looks pretty dang good to me! Nice job for sure. If you decide to leave the frame polished, you might consider using a duracoat clear coat(or similar treatment). It will leave the look but seal it from the elements.

What process did you use to blue it, hot blue, rust blue, cold blue? I did a Rem. BBL. with the old Herters rust blue solution with some good luck after I found out that my water here required me to go with distilled water. Did you have any learning experiences in the process?

Ya I hand polished just the sides of the frame and the slide to originally take out the factory roll marks and when I finished stripping the old off the top side of the slide and revaluing the whole thing the polished sides came out different its not a straight blue almost like the blueing chemicals didn't penetrate into the metal enough
