Why not go to your local DIY store and just buy some (just make sure they are the correct hardness), or failing that visit the dealer?? Probably 20-30p each from somewhere like B&Q.

Or am I missing something :confused:

The tensile strength with bolts at the likes of B&Q is what worries me, I could ask there staff, may as well ask the dog.......think I am sorted with some from a scrapped car in Liverpool.:)

Yup, as long as you make sure the tensile strength is up to specs, then theres no problem.

Not sure of the situation in the UK, but ive bought many bolts for mine over the years from the local farm store at about 20-30p per item (or cheaper!)
