Struggling to see the link on the website Jim, not under news or shop? Can you post it up here?

Great cause Jim, are you going to be sorting out a just giving page for this event for those of us who unfortunately can't make it 😭

I had the opposite problem with my wheels, one came with sprung bearing seals and a shorter crush tube and distance between bearing seats, the other came with sealed bearings and the bearing seats, crush tubes further apart/longer.
I made spacers to fit inside the bearing seats of the one with the separate oil seals and replaced all bearings with sealed ones. This gave the distance apart the bearings are the same dimension. Also it should be the stronger of the two options. I have the longer stub axles on mine, mount the brake mounts innermost, had to do a spot of grinding for fit to the stub carrier and the stubs are spacer free and about 8mm into the outer 10mm bearing.

Been experimenting with paint and an iron for shrinking. I have the sides and half the end skinned and am full of the joys of spring

You must be fairly near a running and stopping chassis for testing now Noel, and those pedals look sweet. Time soon for a video of the chassis moving? Always a momentous occasion.  ;D

Yes to the bearings, you will also need new anti crush tubes between the bearings Nick. I don't know anyone using the Gemini clone TAV, but Hutt imports do one for about £85 delivered
The tube with care can be cut to length with a plumbers pipe cutter
