What's the bottom bracket and seat angle doing with forks that long? Can you use offset bushings or a works headset to keep the rest of the geometry intact?
Here’s a simulation of what 130mm forks will do. Bb is a tad high, but on 26” wheels still probably ok. Will just ride it first once all together before I worry.

Just gotta invert that stem to get the stack height back down
Different stem, super low stack headset. Might even think about a custom upper headset cup to get the bearings lower then the top of the head tube on the outside, but headtube OD is more then 44mm.

Time will tell where it ends up.

This is a big part of why I couldn’t be in the BOTM voting. Big thanks to @Mr Crudley for sending me another complete spare frame in size medium. It’s had a hard life, but I’ll sand blast it back and assess.
