Sue Miller, SJS sportscars, Kelvedon all in the UK I'm afraid. I am not sure on current availability as I bought mine a few years back.

There just standard hardware. Certainly 1/4" probably #8 size.

In the US I can pick them up at any hardware store, probably not in NZ. The size isn't critical so you might be able to select some closely sized metric option.
