Default Driveshaft length

Anyone know the length of driveshaft I'd need making up for the following set up:

Driveshaft: Honda inner spline, mini outer.
Engine: B16A2
Frame: KJB Fabrications
Suspension: Mini upper and lower (all lower fully adjustable)
Mini: standard length round nose

Looking to get some made whilst sorting everything else rather than wait until engine is in etc..

Also recommendations for where to get them from and prices would be good too.

Surely Kieran will know what length they need to be if itís his frame?
Thereís a sticky post by a guy called Aband that joins shafts for not a lot of money.

thanks. Apparently Kieran has a mate who does them, but they weren't cheap, so thought I'd enquire on here to see if anyone knew the length of them etc.. I'll drop him a note and see.. Good call.

As a guide here is the info from Allspeeds site

Quote:
Q. Could you tell me the driveshaft lengths please as i want to cut and shut/ make my own.

A. Cut and shut driveshafts can be succesfull if done correctly, some are nervous about doing this and indeed if they do break, it can be a very dangerous situation and also cause much damage. But the info is freely available.

All overall lengths in mm :

Small block vaux to mini cv 22t to 19 t. 295 and 595
Large block vaux to Allspeed hd cv 25t to 25t. 268 and 333
Large block vaux to mini cv 25t to 19t.288 and 353
Vtec to allspeed hd cv 32t to 25t. 267 and 267
Vtec to mini cv 32t to 19t. 287 and 287

Hi all. Still can't seem to get hold of ABAND through any route, so assuming he's not around anymore or not sleeving driveshafts anymore does anyone know anyone else that does it for a similar price to ABAND and most places now seem to be nearer £200...
