Mustang II spindle drawing

The problem is getting the spindle in the first place. I am in Thailand and there are no Pintos.
My design uses a Cortina MK-III - MK-V or Holden (Australian Chev) spindle both from the 70's which are also impossible to get here. My alternative is to redesign for a Japanese spindle, or use the Mustang II.

Since I need to redesign or import what I need, it might be best to use the Mustang II as the aftermarket is full of not only standard and dropped spindles, but big brakes as well.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I do not like the safety aspects of welding a spindle or splicing spindle to lower A-arm. I have seen welded spindles fail and would prefer to do it differently. YMMV.

Here is a drawing of the chassis FYI. Note mid engine, and double A-arm suspension front and rear. Rear hubs are BMW 525, and now I need the front spindle.

Any help in getting a Mustang Ii spindle drawing would be greatly appreciated.
