Expedition Storage Doors

When pulling out of a tight pull-through, I did not notice a low rock lining the exit on the passenger side. Needless to say, I scraped the rock damaging the first two storage doors and cracking the LP side pipe. The pipe will have to be replaced. Just cant use any LP until done. The two doors are aluminum with scratches and a small tear. Of course this has depressed me but I figure its bound to happen.
My question is should I take them off and head to a body shop or purchase replacement doors from Fleetwood? Im thinking they can be sanded, touched up and shaped. Anyone done this or am I the first?
(The hard part is the day prior, my windshield was cracked driving down I-70 west of Vail when a car hit a chunk of wood debris flinging it in the air and striking my windshield right at my head level. Good thing the glass is so strong or I may have been injured.)
Thanks,

On a different brand motor home, I had to replace all the bun doors because the manufacturer used steel screws in the aluminum frame of the doors. All were coming apart due to galvanic corrosion. It was about 2004 and I dont remember the cost.

I have one door damaged on the bottom edge and up about 5 inches on the edge. I am seriously considering installing 6 inch high stainless steel trim all the way around. No screws. Held by adhesive. Cost is less than door repair.

Thanks

Site is somewhat difficult to find specific items. But they make stainless trim that glues on. They have several different heights of trim. I think 6 high will cover my damage. The trim to go around wheel wells is very pricey.

I did ask about measuring, and the answer was to measure the width of the door exactly. I think there us a guide on the website on how to measure.

Sorry for the long delay to respond.
