Our entrance door has a bit of a blemish on the right side (see picture). Since the door is metal, I was wondering if the top layer was perhaps a thin panel such as one finds on the front of an oven or such. So, is it possible to simply replace the front panel? (Again, assuming it has one.) Should the door not have a front panel, any suggestions on how to patch this and make it look cosmetically good?

The panel can be replaced, but IMHO it isn't simple. An analogy would be like replacing the bottom layer of a wedding cake. You'd have to remove the door from the trailer by disconnecting the hinges. Then disassemble the door from the inside out. There should be a join in the edge which, when disassembled, should release the layers of the door.

Thanks Frederick.

Well, DH removed the door handle/lock today and found rotten wood throughout the door. So...it looks like we will be replacing the entire door soon - solves that problem.
