Two element cubicle quad Help

I am new to six metres , mostly Hf.
A few years ago i constructed the two element quad and even with the driven element i got contacts , very impressed !.
Only last year with the driven element propped against a brick wall i had contacts .
I am now wanting to improve the design but have read a lot on element spacing , reflector tuning stubs , 75 ohm 1/4 wave feed , driven element gamma matching , now i am a bit confused as to the best route to take .
If this works out i would like to have a go at a 4 element quad .
Going mobile / portable is also of interest also.

Many thanks

Malcolm Thomas
