    nice job... I get it, mine has been ten years in the doing and I didn't go as far as you did, looks good should be fun to drive. That was my goal with mine.

    You're doing beautiful work!! I love it! Question for you; I have that same rear axle cover, but mine leaks a bit of gear fluid. I didn't use any kind of sealant, just a standard GM gasket, dry. Does yours seal up well? Did you use any sealant?
