Doesn’t appeal to everybody,

I used a company a few years ago to professionally shorten my driveshafts by an inch. They shortened them right in the middle then they were friction welded back together. Sure it cost me about £300 for the pair to be shortened plus they rebuilt the CV joints and replaced the boots. They’re still going and I’ve got over 250BHP going through them.

I understand the auto drive shafts are rare.

Yeah thats perfectly suitable option, Im not sure regarding the dimensions, but there is a possibility of shortening the shaft and having new splines machined as well if your mind wouldn't be happy with a weld. But given the rare nature, I go with kai

There must be quite a few automatics that have been scrapped, but I guess you need one about to be! Try Jane Terry down in Kent. They don't usually throw anything away! 01303840374 I think.

If that fails, I could surely get you someone in the USA who has them coming out of his ears! You'd only need a drive shaft, which probably wouldn't need eye-watering postage - not £300 certainly.
