Can someone look at these and tell me what you think of the pattern?
I have a .030 pinion shim and .010 backlash.

Looks good you have a nice pattern that feathers out towards the heal and toe and does not have a sharp edge near the face or the flank. :D

Looks good, not too deep and on center.

The open diff has got to go though. .. ..

Looks good but run it around a few times more with putting pressure on the ring gear as is spins to help smush out a clean pattern. Then you can check the pattern in a few spots around the ring.
