Don't worry about the pics I opted to go with a newer style handle as we'll. I must say, I used one of those multi crafter type saws and its, definitely the tool for the job.

Sure ill be the guniea pig got the hole cut just looking on how to fill the old hole. I've used fiberglass before but I want to fill the remainder of the old hole with some wood backing for strength. Also the strike that's mounted to the body needs to be built out. The new latch sits closer to the face of the door by quite a bit but a few metal shims should do the trick. Ill post some pick along the way for you to see.

Please as there may be alternate solutions. I have a Casita door so I may or may not have an identical situation and would like to see everything.

Rough fitting of new door handle. Not quite totally finished but it worked out well. I cut rough opening for the new handle, then filled the remainder of the old hole with pieces of plywood. Then I filled the holes with low expansion spray foam and let dry. Then I trimmed the excess away with utility knife, leaving the same thickness as the original fiberglass. I did the outside patch first, then sanded the crap out of it. Less is more when using resin. Then I removed all the spray foam that was left and then laid mats of fiberglass on the inside, I used small pieces of Box to hold the mat up to keep it from sagging into the inner part of the door. Then sanded for ever again till smooth and cut in the new handle.

Good for you Johnathan. Much, much better than dealing with an old broken lock or one so badly worn you don't know if the door is going to stay closed.

Cool!

Ill post some more picks when I do some work on where the strike going to be. I need to build it out for the for the latch to catch it sits deeper in the door then the old one. I would like to get a piece of metal bent all in one piece and wrap it around the door trim and brace it to the wall of the closet.
