Cargo Door Scrape fix?

Ok Guys, was wondering if anyone knows the best or correct way to repair scrapes in the cargo bin doors? I have a gray LaPalma and one door has a pretty deep scrape down in the aluminum door skin.

The rig looks to be a custom paint as far as not decals. Are the doors painted with base and a clear or tinted clear coat?
I was going to fill and sand and then spray either one step or two step paint and clear but if they are clear coat then that's another issue.

Thanks

These coaches are a "base coat - clear coat" finish.

You would need to sand out (and/or fill in) the scratch then repaint.
If you sand down to bare metal then you'll need a primer (like an epoxy primer), and maybe a filler-primer (which allows a "buildup" that can be sanded depending on how deep the scratch is), then the base (color) coat, followed by the clear coat.

You'll want to spray a small panel to check for color match in the sun. We blended a lot to match color and cleared. It's a lot easier on solid colors than metallic or pearl. If you can remove a panel and bring to paint store they can tweak it some. We used to bring the gas door/cover.

It has been my experience that doing patch work will show an inconsistency when the area is viewed in full sunlight unless the entire panel is painted. I have found it necessary to make the repair and then primer the entire panel with a good primer. Then apply the color to the entire panel and once that is dry clearcoat the panel.
