David Isopon fibre-glass kits and perforated mesh & filler were the usual affordable fix back then , except for the cowboys who repaired with the papier mache method
Your not wrong there I had a Hillman minx series 5 sill repaired by one guy who told me he had welded in a plate and then skimmed over with filler ..sound as a pound now he said when I picked it up..few years later when the filler cracked and fell out I could recycle enough news paper to start a chip shop..
