Are you refering to the metalic type of blue.
If so that may be difficult to achieve. I am not sure about this, but having seen how this finish wears off, it appears this early form of metalic finish was achieved first by applying a base coat of silver, second a very thin coating of the colour so the silver is still visable. Then I guess a clear coat. I assume this as I have a G2CSR that was worn down over a large area showing the silver colour. I tried to match the metalic effect, although the colour was something near original, it was a much more dense metalic finnish.
