    Get high tensile bolts from a fastner supplier.

    I would contact an engineering firm and ask them the make some spreader plates up for you.

    We have a steel stockist about 10 miles from us and I usually get any steel requirements from them - however they only sell full lengths of steel and now have a minimum order.

    You could order a couple of lengths of flat bar from Ebay suppliers and cut and drill your own spreader plates.

    The 30mm x 5mm should be enough, although the wider and thicker the better.

    The 40mm by 10mm thick would be much better, but would take longer to drill. If you are using a small angle grinder to cut lengths, please take care - they are killers.

    Once cut and drilled, paint it with Hammerite paint to slow the rusting down.
