Before adjusting the geometry get corner weights properly adjusted as it doesn't matter how good your geometry is it will still pull all over the place if your corner weights are out.

I would have liked to but I just don't have the resource and time to sort that at the minute just trying to get it drivable for Wales ... Unless bathroom scales work .

Your lucky it's a rover lump not a big heavy one sided redtop!
Set it to your profured ride hight( if you can, then get down to a friendly keen tracking center and exsplain the crack!
It may work out good,
Go by the chart settings for any factory 13 inch wheel model

I'd try:
fronts
0 degrees camber, 0.25-0.5 degree toe out, 5 degrees castor
rears
0 degrees camber, 0.25-0.5 degrees toe in.

make sure your tie bar bushes are in good condition too

I'll give it a go, trying to get as many different set ups from here and the internet trying to sort of find a average set up if you know what I mean but I think it's going to be trial and error and only two weeks .. lower arms are rose jointed so hopefully no movement .

Yes ok lol, set your ride hight so it don't rub !
You have to ok !! So now is the best time,
Don't worry about the damping rate yet as you can do that on road test last,
I mentioned 13 inch wheel size chart at alignment
Centre to get you close,ish,
I can't see the chart but they aren't that much diferant to afect you ,when you have absolutely nothing at the moment,
As you say about trying to find a avarage ,that's cool but to find a avarage requires set fuigers ! But due to your frame being a kind of individual that's not a useful starting point!
I think what I mean is ( you can't go far wrong if you set like Garry said or the base numbers
And add salt and pepper after to your and the minis liking,
