Repairing entry door...

Hi everybody. Any thoughts on how to repair this type of damage (without bringing it to the dealer)?

Opppps.
Is that interior or exterior?

Looks like fiberglass?

Exterior... Here is an example of why they have the limit device to only allow the door to open half-way. I will be putting it back on :-).

Thanks Turbs... I was hoping there would be some way for me to do a home remedy.

I was wondering what the story on that was...

You might be able to get some lightweight 1.5oz or 2oz. fiberglass and wet out the spot like is done on small boats (thinking kayak and canoes). But you're going to have a hard time making it invisible.

I certainly wouldn't attack it on such a prominent feature. :-(

The fiberglass will wet out clear. It's just feathering the edges and doing it nice...

Lots of people repair gel coat that way.

Don't know if the surface underneath is going to adhere to the epoxy and... and... lots of ands and caveats and warnings. :-(
