Proper motorhome thread, door repair

As it´s part of the body I assume this is the right place

All I did was shut the door, as you do when you come out and I heard a bang, opened the door and the bin had broken off.

Has this happened to anyone else, if so how did you mend it? The chiefs brain is at work and he is planning what to do, but maybe there is an easy fix you know of.

If it were mine I'd fabricate a pair of caps and fix them in place, I say a pair as it would keep the appearance and hopefully make it look original.
I'd use something like .5 mm 302 stainless sheet as it could be nicely polished for a decent finish.

He has a question, how would you fill the hole & how would you keep it in?

Round 2

Insert inserted with the inserter

Now he needs some filler to hold it in with. It´s too darned hot to go out to get some today so unless he finds some in his store cupboard the finish will have to wait until Monday.
