Pulled a door card to take a look and found a messy but functional repair on the center section.
It's taken beating from the door pull handle over nearly 40 years. I've found these panels tend to be made from ABS and so I removed the metal repair, neatened up the hole and cut a piece to fit. Then use plumbers solvent to glue it in properly and permanently as well as strengthening up some other cracks in the panel. Glued the alcantara trim back on with contact adhesive and all was good as new for another 40 years :)
