Wait what. Where is this little tid bit of info from? Please elaborate if you can. Shims and straps for something that has worn and become out of spec, sure. But purposely doing it to put it into spec? That's just sketchy. ImoPutting in shims and straps is very common in older vehicles as we learn about long-term wear of parts.
'More bolts' isn't always the answer. Holes create weak points.
Patches like that strapping thing is what I would have and infact have done as a young man while building things like weedwacker engine bikes, lawnmower go carts, etc.
A couple more reinforced holes in the firewall would be quite easy to do. And permanent.
