Why not just convert it to a 6 element Hy-Gain for six meters (model VB-66X)
as per the on-line assembly manual?  It's 24' long and would make use of all
the stuff you already have, although you'd need to greatly modify the driven
element T-match and make a new balun:

Subject: [BULK] - [TowerTalk] Converting Hygain 105BA to Six Meters

 I have a 105BA that I have been thinking of converting to six meters. I am
sure it could be done but am wondering if anyone has done this or has the
actual data for this conversion. I would like to use the existing elements
and shorted them appropriately and use all or most of the 24 ft boom length
so I would guess it would end up a 6 element yagi on six. I do not have any
modeling software or know how to use it so I guess I am looking for sort of
a turnkey solution. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks and 73's,
