LF: E30 driveshaft in Hamilton area

Who has a spare driveshaft that they don't need in the Hamilton area?

I'm looking for a complete E30 driveshaft from a late model 6 cylinder car. I don't really care if it was auto or manual. As long as the drive shaft is straight and can be balanced I'm happy.

auto and manual driveshafts are different lengths, so you need the correct one to fit your application.

You've been working on this swap for a couple of years now, eh?

A drive shaft and an exhaust and she's on the road.
The entire summer was lost to the body shop.

I'm in Ottawa, but I have a good condition driver shaft I could ship. It's from a 325i and has a new guibo on it. It's balanced fine.

Thanks, but I need a drive shaft to cut up. It's not even worth the shipping for me.

If you just need one to cut up, I've got a couple from manual 4 cylinder e30's kicking around. LMK.
