Rustoleum's V2119 stainless steel is what I used on mine.
The consensus is that some rears were painted all black, and some had a black center and the axle tubes were unpainted.
What plant built your rear? It's the last letter on the axle tube after the date stamp.

Bill, it was built by Chevrolet Buffalo. It never occurred to me that the tubes are unpainted but now looking at it, you are correct. The tubes are just primed to stop rust. Dan, I have never posted pictures so as soon as I figure it out, I'll post.
