I think it really depends on the mindset of the shop doing the work. 
Can't hurt to talk to them.

MGB sills are a multilayer structure. Defects in the inner structure 
require removing everything on top. I suggest the best approach is to 
plan on replacing the whole structure, and stop when you run out of 
problems. The shop has to be willing and able to restore the body shell 
alignment prior to commencing its work. If it can't, the rest of the 
work will be for naught.

There will be lots of sandblasting and structural work. Not all shops 
are willing to undertake that.
