Door Repair

When purchased, my 345LE had black paint 'patch' at entry door handle. Now with paint removed, I've discovered that this is actually a repair for hasp lock.
Don't want patch as huge as what is at entry door handle, but also thinking a patch 'may' strengthen entry door handle area.
My thoughts are to take patch to beltline, no clue how far down or how far from door jamb.
Any thoughts, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, DerekClick image for larger version

you could just re skin the entire door. bot too difficult job to do. or indeed a large patch from under the trim to the upper edge would blend in better.
