Nonetheless, all of my advice still stands. Most important of which, is that you should be using captive nuts. Cheers.
I called my local shop and they've got 'em and it's going in to just have them check the BB and hub (not sure if they were ever serviced and it's 10 years old) since I don't have the tools for that. They'll put on the track nuts at the same time - and show me how to center and tension the wheel!!! Good folks =)
