Are you going to make it a solid door like what would come on the ones that you buy with a ramp or is this one going to be out of expanded metal?
I had originally thought about doing it the way you had mentioned the other guy did it, but I figured since the doors aren't in great shape that I would just make a whole new door like you would get with one that you would buy.
