      why not glue a bunch of hardwood strips together and turn them round on a large lathe then install it.

          Take a piece of white oak use a 4"x4" and have it turned to the ID of your shaft ends. Try home depot they have different "Hobby Wood" I get all my wood for making different cutting Boards serving Trays

                    I recommend a hardwood and shape it to the diameter of a regular driveshaft and add counter weights if needed.

                              It would have held up WAY better if you guys just spun it on the rack and shaved it some to balance it. The Rustang Wood Lathe. Cutting the extra off the bolts so they didn't hit the exhaust and brake lines would have been a great idea as well....🤦‍♂️

                                    Use some stainless zip ties every couple of inches down the shaft to maybe help it hold together.
