Deck Hardware Questions backing plate, etc

I am mounting all my deck hardware and have a few questions about it. I have already figured out what to use.

In the pictures you can see the aft stantions in that they do not sit flush. Also the outward bolt is buried behind the wood trim and into the part of the hull. I will be using a lag bolt there. The other areas will be using bolts, backing plates and locking nuts.

How do I cut 1/8" 316 steal for backing plate, without big power tools?

The stantion on my pulpit ended up a little too wide. Unfortunately I had drilled the holes already. See Photos.

Should I epoxy over the holes and bend the pulpit in more?

Or could I grind out a little bit of the ridge in the deck and mount then mount the pulpit flat?

One last question, what are my epoxy options when it is not going to be above 50 degrees for the next 6 months?
