The 12-bolt rear end cover on my car has quite a few pits in it from rust. Some time ago, I sandblasted the cover then primed & painted it. It looks good, but you can obviously still see the pits throught the paint. I'll be doing a diff oil change when the car comes back from paint, so that will be the time to fix it. I'm trying to decide if it is worth the effort to do 'body work' on the original cover.
So, how are the reproduction covers? HBC claims to have one that is better than everyone else's, but they also want a premium price for it. Has anyone here used one of their covers? I like the idea of a new cover, but don't like the idea of reproductions parts that look like reproductions.
Any opinions or recommendations are appreciated. Thanks.
