1978 burro door repair

The lower half of my 1978 door has fallen apart and lost its proper arc. I have separated the skins and found a lot of rotted plywood around the inner edges. There is also a curved piece of what looks to be a piece of hard plastic (approx. 2" x 18" long), between the skins. I think it was installed to help create an arc shape. I can not tell if it was original from the factory, or a poor repair attempt by a former owner. Have you done any internal door repairs? Have you seen anything like this? Do you have any suggestions on how to "re-arc" the lower portion of the door for a better fit? Thanks Fred
