Converting GQ bearing setup to GU system front axle

Morning, has anybody done this?, the GQ has a useless bearing stopper/washer in place to keep bearing from moving sideways where the GU has a lockable system

Actually, I have never done it, but apparently Frans does it quite regularly.

I believe all you need are the two nuts and the little screws that lock them together.

I make improved tab washers instead, so that the standard nuts work better.
