Rusty sills!

Okay guys, it's coming up for my MOT next month.

I know the sills need welding done to them. They appear to be rusting from the inside out.

I have 3 options:

1) buy a pattern sill for a ZG/ZJ.
2) simply weld in "flat" sheet steel. so it's angular. this is also very cheap option.
3) patch the holes again - which usually leaves a mess but it's a lot less work.

Does anyone have an idea of what Option 2 would look like if I did that? my ZG is black and I don't think it'll be that noticeable

Thanks for advice, in advance.

I think I'll have other issues, but I'll see what happens as and when the time comes
