Justvdetailed the rear axle.
The rear was all rebuilt and is from a 1968 GTO 4 pinion Posi with 3:55 gear ratio,
I sandblasted the axle. Drained and refilled with new gear oil and additive.
Replaced the dented rear cover with new, new brake lines, Brakes and inspection marks and decals

Looks great, well done with all the detail into it. If your car does not already have these, while you have the rear end out and can get to everything, I would add either the factory style reproduction upper/lower control arm braces https://www.opgi.com/gto/D250054/ or spring for a set of aftermarket braces. 1964-1967 GM A-Body Control Arm Reinforcements/Frame Braces [4029] - $129.99 : UMI Performance, Inc. The 4 speed cars had them, but it does help to add some strength to the frame mounting points if you plan on "using" the car.
