As far as nuts'n'bolts is concerned, Wilko's usually have some, or any hardware shoppie, for a very reasonable price. I have BAGS of spares, just in case !
Unfortunately, where me lotty is, we have no water supply nor 'leccy, so it's usually in the old seafaring parlance, Norwegian Steam, Anglo-Saxon for carrying and wot keeps the wheels turning. Water is like a bank. When you need it, it ain't there, and when you DON'T need it, it is pissing down ! Such is life.
When you clean your frames with the steamer, consider a rinse with some moss killer, which will deter it coming back soon. Moss, up here in Northumberland anyway, is a bloody nuisance, especially on a north facing slope as we are.
Well done on your progress anyway.
