He did some shafts for me last year and did a good job. I'll send him an email with a link to this thread.

This is what's on his website

If he's still around would it be worth updating the sticky with his website details?

Default Driveshaft sleeving/welding

Iíve managed to speak to Adam recently and the answer is in two parts.
1. no he isnít really doing sleeved shafts anymore BUT
2. He is looking at doing his own single piece ones.
Hooray I here you shout.
Iím looking at a Honda B18 and all heís asked from me is to supply the internal of the diff bearings to get a perfect match for the different drive shaft splines.
As soon as I find said items Iíll speak to him again.

Will be worthwhile having him design them with a shoulder on them rather than the groove at the Mini CV end that is a weak point.

Thanks for the help and pointers guys, I've been in touch with him and like Doodling say's he was trying to stay away from welding/sleeving and suggests getting one piece ones made but he didn't say he was doing them though.

Matt Boot used a place in the midlands I think for custom 1 piece driveshafts - seem to remember reading about his mx5 Lexus v8 project which he drifts. Broke loads then found a supplier. I'll try to dig out the details
