I've had a V1 SPITFIRE kicking about for 18 months but i'm now looking to get it painted.

Will I be able to re-use the bushings? (I already think I can't).

I've seen the IGUS bushing posts and been on their website - they seem quite expensive.

I've also found 'simply bearings' website (I'm from the UK) - and found they do bushings.

I'm going to call both firms but is there anywhere else I could try?

Also do they have to be flanged?
