Re: advice needed

For the first problem, try to increase the contact surface as much as possible, and then reinforce it with brass rod. I'd extend the bottom of the frame, using plastic rods with metal rods added inside, then cut the door to accommodate the extended sections, and fix those extensions with epoxy putty.
For the second problem, use a needle file and make the screw hole coarse. That way, epoxy putty will grab the surface. When smoothing. use super glue. You can't blend epoxy and soft vinyl. So, try brush-painting the primer fairly thick, and smooth it instead. Avoid bending the part, or primer will crack)
